Free Flu Shot Event in Cobble Hill at NYU Langone
It’s time for NYU Langone Health’s annual free flu shot event in Cobble Hill. Anyone who’s been meaning to visit the doctor, but hasn’t had the time, can stop by 83 Amity Street on Saturday October 17, from 10AM to 2PM, for a quick, free flu shot.
“It’s more important than ever to receive your flu shot early this year,” says Reed Caldwell, MD, chief of service, NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill emergency department. “With Covid-19 still widespread in many parts of our country, and with recent clusters in Brooklyn, it’s essential that we take any steps we can to prevent respiratory illnesses from circulating in our community.” The flu vaccine greatly improves the incidence and severity of the virus.
Following strict safety procedures, everyone will be screened for symptoms at entry and required to wear a mask.
