Camden County Freeholders are hosting additional flu shot clinics for residents Wednesday in Camden and Friday in Bellmawr. The added clinics coincide the reports of elevated influenza throughout the state. The Camden site will offer shots from noon to 2 p.m. at 2600 Mt. Ephraim Rd., Suite 105. The Bellmawr clinic, from 1 to 4 p.m., is available at te Bellmawr Regional Health Center, 35 Browning Rd.
“In order to keep your family healthy this flu season, we encourage you to take advantage of this service,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Health Department. “Flu shots are recommended to those in high priority groups including senior citizens, pregnant women and chronically ill individuals. The flu can have devastating effects if it is not treated right away.”
Flu shots are also recommended for people with weakened immune or cardiovascular systems, or with chronic metabolic diseases, renal dysfunction or blood disorders. Youngsters aged nine and older must be accompanied by an adult. Children under nine need two shots, a month apart, and should be seen by a pediatrician. For uninsured children, call CamCare at (856) 541-9811 or the Bellmawr Health Center at (856) 931-2700.
