Union County Flu Shot Drive Kicks off in Elizabeth

Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados joined Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage in thanking the staff and volunteers at the flu shot site at the Peterstown Community Center in Elizabeth. As the flu season approaches, Union County is offering a series of free flu shot drives in local communities to help ensure that everyone has access to a free seasonal flu vaccine at a convenient location, especially residents who have no health insurance. Protection against seasonal flu is more important than ever before due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Union County Flu Shot Drive is administered by the Union County Office of Health Management in the Department of Public Safety, the Visiting Nurse Association, and volunteers from the Union County Medical Reserve Corps. The Medical Reserve Corps accepts volunteers with a variety of skills both in and out of the medical profession.
