Clifton Health Department to Offer Seasonal Flu Shots in Clifton

The Clifton Health Department will be offering seasonal flu vaccines beginning in October. The flu vaccine is effective for only one year, so note that last year’s flu shot will not protect you this year. Flu vaccines are available to Clifton and Little Falls residents only. Consent forms will be available online at www.cliftonnj.org, the Clifton Health Department, Main Memorial Library and Allwood Library in Clifton, and the Little Falls Municipal Building. Bringing a completed consent form to a flu clinic should expedite your visit.

The seasonal quadrivalent flu vaccine offers protection against four (4) different strains of the flu virus. A limited number of “high-dose” trivalent flu vaccines will be available to those 65 years of age and older. The “high-dose” flu vaccine offers protection against three (3) strains of the flu, but is designed to give a bigger boost to the immune systems of those 65 years of age and older.

The standard flu clinics will be open to residents 6 years of age and older and do not require appointments. Standard flu clinics will be held at the Clifton Health Department Clinic located at 900 Clifton Ave., 2nd Floor, in Clifton on the following dates:
