YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Washtenaw County Health Department will be offering no-cost flu vaccines at two upcoming events in Whitmore Lake and Ypsilanti.

The events are offered in collaboration with community partners throughout the county. According to the Health Department, everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine, especially this year with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are the times and locations for the upcoming free vaccination events:

Saturday, Oct 31 - Whitmore Lake

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., residents 6 months and older can receive a vaccine via drive-thru at the former Whitmore Lake Middle School at 8877 Main Street.

Monday, Nov. 2 - Ypsilanti

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., residents 6 months and older can receive a vaccine via drive-thru at the Washtenaw County Health Department Parking Lost at 555 Towner Street.

Flu vaccinations prevent serious illness, related hospitalizations and in the most severe cases deaths. Getting a flu vaccine can also reduce the risk of becoming infected with both COVID-19 and the flu at the same time.
