Department of Health begins flu vaccination clinics | News


District 1 has begun offering the flu shot throughout Northwest Oklahoma. Flu shots are available to everyone 6 months of age and older. Whether you are insured or not, you can get a flu shot at no cost to you.

The best way to prevent serious complications from the flu is to get vaccinated. Annual flu shots provide optimal protection and immunity against flu viruses that are constantly changing. Seasonal flu shots offer protection for you, but also for those around you, including those who are most vulnerable.

“It is especially important for people with chronic illnesses, young children, older adults and pregnant women to get vaccinated against the flu this season to avoid serious complications from the flu,” said County Health Department Director and Regional Administrator from District 1, Ashley Ferguson.

County Health Departments have established specific clinic hours to serve your community. Several county health departments have established off-site, after-hours clinics to offer more options to the public. The Mobile Welfare Unit is traveling throughout the district to provide rural communities with availability in their area.
