Flu Shot Clinics
The Howard County Health Department encourages people of all ages to get a seasonal flu shot from a healthcare provider, local pharmacy, retailer or big box store. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, and missed work and school (even virtual school) due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.

To learn more and sign up for a Flu clinic, visit the Health Department's Flu Page.
