  • People 65 years and older

People at high risk for serious flu-related complications should make getting vaccinated a priority. Vaccination is also important for anyone who has close contact with a person at high risk for complications, or a child younger than 6 months of age. For more information, visit the CDC's website.

Flu Shots for Local Businesses

The LCHD is happy to accommodate Livingston County businesses and reduce any barriers to their workers to receiving the flu vaccine. This service is at no cost to the employer and all vaccinations are administered by a well-trained LCHD nurse.
