MACOMB (WWJ) – Starting Monday, the Macomb County Health Department is offering seasonal flu vaccines at the county health centers in St. Clair Shores, Mount Clemens and Warren.
County Medical Director Dr. Kevin Lokar tells us who the vaccine is intended for.
“The influenza vacine is recommened for everybody, six months of age or older, although it’s specifically important for people with underlying medical conditions, cronic medical conditions, like heart disease, lung disease, those who are immune suppressed,” said Lokar. “It’s also recommended for women who are pregnant during the influenza seasons.”
The cost is $15 and the vaccine will be available through January, as supplies last.
