Flu shots available at health department

Flu shots are now available at the Evans County Health Department (ECHD).  Residents can receive flu shots  Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Please note the office is closed daily from 12 noon – 1 p.m.

Minimizing opportunities of contracting the flu is as getting a flu shot which is especially important this year because of concerns already existing due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

In Georgia, flu season typically begins in October, peaks in December and February, and usually ends in the spring.

The ECHD is located at 4 North Newton Street in Claxton.
