Stay Healthy This Flu Season!

The Oakland County Health Division will be offering flu shots with better protection this season. These shots will guard individuals against four viruses: Type A H1N1 and H3N2 and two Type B strains, all of which are most likely to occur this season.

The importance of getting a flu shot cannot be stressed enough– getting vaccinated greatly reduces the number of people that get ill each flu season, and helps to decrease the severity of the illness and its complications. Our updated flu shots will help in our goal of helping to keep Oakland County residents healthy.

Flu shots will be offered  by the Oakland County Health Division beginning Tuesday, September 17th. Residents can visit the Health Division’s offices in Pontiac and Southfield at the following days and times: Mondays (12pm – 8pm), and Tuesdays – Fridays (9am – 5pm). Shots cost $20, with walk-ins welcome and online pre-registration available (click HERE). Online payment options include Visa, MasterCard, Medicare, and/or Medicaid (credit card fees apply), and cash is also accepted for walk-ins. Brooks Flu Shot
