Don’t forget about the flu

While we still must monitor ourselves and family members for symptoms of Covid-19, please keep in mind that flu season is here. Updated flu information from the New YorkState Department of Health and other flu facts are available in several languages. Additionally, information about flu vaccines is available from the CDC. 

Albany County offers flu vaccines by appointment. The Health Department accepts many insurance plans, including Medicaid, and offers a sliding fee scale. Additionally, if families have questions or concerns about getting a flu vaccine for their child, they can contact their building school nurse.
