The Glynn County Department of Health is providing flu vaccines to the public, and appointments are not necessary. The event will take place on Thursday, October 5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 2747 Fourth Street. Flu vaccines will be offered to individuals aged six months and older, including the high-dose flu vaccine recommended for seniors aged 65 and above.
It is important to note that it takes approximately two weeks for the flu vaccine to provide protection against the flu after administration. While early fall is considered the optimal time to get vaccinated, receiving the vaccine at any point during the flu season can still be beneficial in terms of protection.
