Flu Vaccine Now Available

Flu Vaccine Now Available at the Maury County Health Department

Columbia, Tenn. – Influenza, or flu, season is here, and the Maury County Health Department is ready to offer flu vaccine to area residents. No appointment is needed. We are opened Monday – Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.

“It takes about two weeks to be protected after you get the flu vaccine, so it’s a good idea to get the vaccine as soon as it’s available,” said Mrs. Cook, director of Maury County Health Department. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine each year, and we urge everyone to take this important preventive step to protect health in our community.”

Vaccine will be provided at a cost of $20 and may slide, based on income. The clinic is located at 1909 Hampshire Pike and open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
