Health Department Offers Flu Shots For Adults And Children 

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health is offering flu shots to children and adults. Free flu shots are available to uninsured children six months to 18 years old. Individuals with insurance may receive a flu shot at no out-of-pocket cost if they have Medicare, Medicaid, North Carolina Health Choice, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Tri-Care for Life, and Tri-Care Select.

Hours at the Health Department’s Immunizations Clinic are Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., every second and fourth Tuesday until 7:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  Walk-ins are asked to please arrive at least 30 minutes before closing to ensure they are seen within business hours.

The Cumberland County Department of Public Health is located at 1235 Ramsey St., Fayetteville NC. For more information, call the Immunizations Clinic at 910.433.3633 or 910.433.3657.

While flu can have serious implications, even for healthy people, flu complications are most common among very young children and people over 50, as well as people with chronic health conditions and pregnant women.

In addition to vaccinations, you can prevent flu and other illnesses by:

  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then discarding the tissue properly.
  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water or, if not available, with an approved hand sanitizer.
  • Staying home when you are sick. Stay home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours.
