Free Flu Shots At Northwest Hospital

Starting tomorrow, Northwest Hospital will be offering free seasonal flu shots to community members. This is a partnership with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

These free shots will be available outside the hospital's Old Court Café (near the main lobby) from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the following dates:
  • Wednesday, November 10
  • Thursday, November 11
  • Monday, November 15
  • Tuesday, November 16
  • Wednesday, November 17

"This is a great opportunity for anyone who has not yet received a flu shot this year," notes Mary Wallace, the hospital's manager of infection prevention and control. Wallace points out that seasonal flu shots can cost up to $30 at area pharmacies, so getting a free seasonal flu shot can be a big help in today's economy.

The shots are available for anyone 14 years or older who has not yet received the 2010-11 seasonal flu vaccine. In addition to H1N1, the shots protect against two new strains of the flu.

Northwest Hospital is located at 5401 Old Court Road in Randallstown. Parking is free.

Reduce your chance of getting sick this year - come to Northwest Hospital on one of the above dates and times for your free shot!
