Flu shots given at Ventnor clinic

Posted: Updated:

Flu season is in full swing and Atlantic County wants to make sure its residents stay healthy throughout.

Thursday's flu clinic was held in Ventnor in spite of Hurricane Sandy's lingering affects on the community. Thursday was the last of 11 scheduled flu clinics sponsored by the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

"Well the reason why every year you need a flu shot is because the flu virus changes every year so the vaccine itself consists of a formula that protects you against 3 strains of flu that are thought to be circulating in the community," said Atlantic County Public Health Officer Patricia Diamond.

The county will be holding walk in flu clinics daily at the Stillwater building in Northfield starting Tuesday.
