Time to Get Flu Vaccinations

The Cecil County Health Department suggests all county residents prepare for the annual flu season by scheduling flu vaccines with their health care providers. Flu vaccine is readily available at many doctors’ offices and local pharmacies. In partnership with area schools, Cecil County Health Department will provide FluMist® to public and private school students in grades K through 5 during school hours. Parents should look for information from their schools. 

For more information about the flu, please call the Health Department's Flu Phone Line at 410-996-1005.
