Rockland County Executive Ed Day and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert are urging everyone six months and older to receive a flu vaccine as cases of influenza (flu) rise across the state. The Health Department will be offering a special flu vaccine clinic in Haverstraw on Thursday, February 22 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the WIC office, located at 26 New Main Street, Suite 1, Haverstraw. No appointments are needed.

The Health Department is offering the flu vaccine free of charge if you: are 65 years and older (please bring identification with proof of age); have Medicare or Medicaid (please bring your card); or are uninsured or underinsured. For those 6 months through 64 years old, there is a $25 fee (down from $30 last year). Cash or checks will be accepted. For those with private health insurance, we will provide you with a receipt to submit to your health insurance for possible reimbursement.

You can also call the Health Department at 845-364-2534 to make an appointment to receive the flu vaccine at the Health Department in Pomona, or check with your doctor and your child’s doctor, or visit to find other flu vaccine clinics in our area.
