“We really need everyone six months and older to get the flu vaccine unless they have a medical contraindication to it,” said Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s County health officer. “Decreasing the amount of flu transmission in our community relieves stress on our health care system, helps keep kids in school, and means less people get quarantined for their COVID-like flu symptoms.”

Additionally, SMCHD is partnering with St. Mary’s County Public Schools and MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital to offer drive-thru flu vaccine clinics for child and adult community members. Click here for more information on dates, times, and locations.
