Have You Gotten A Flu Shot Yet?

If Not, What Are You Waiting For?
Free flu clinic Feb.11 in Somerville


Don’t let the unusually warm weather fool you.  It’s flu season in New Jersey! 


The Somerset County Department of Health is offering a free flu-vaccination opportunity to Somerset County adults ages 18 and older who have not yet gotten a flu shot this season.  Shots will be given on Thursday, Feb. 11, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the first-floor conference room of the Somerset County Human Services Building, located at 27 Warren St.

Free parking is available in the parking deck at 27 Warren St., on the third and fourth floors only. Additional free parking is available about two blocks away in the Bernie Field Parking Deck on East High Street, adjacent to the county administration building.  You can exit the parking deck from the rear and cross Main Street.  Metered parking also is available on Main Street.

According to the New Jersey Department of Health, there is increasing influenza activity throughout the state, and many people are at risk.  As long as flu is circulating and causing illness, getting a flu vaccine is beneficial. 

 

Anyone who is underinsured or uninsured and cannot make an upcoming clinic can contact the Somerset County Department of Health at (908) 231-7155 for a free flu- shot voucher for use at a local Walgreens store.  Supplies of vouchers are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first-served basis.

Welcome to Bound Brook, a historic borough of approximately 1.6 square miles and 10,400 residents – a great place to live, work and play. First settled in the late 1600s, Bound Brook is located along the Raritan River, in the northeastern corner of Somerset County. It sits between two brooks – the Middlebrook to the west along its border with Bridgewater, and the Green Brook (also referred to as the Bound Brook) to the east along its border with Middlesex Borough and Middlesex County. The borough has much to offer.

Its size is optimal -- small enough to retain a “small town” flavor, and with its own downtown, but within easy travel distance of all the cultural, economic and transportation resources of the Newark/New York metropolitan area. Bound Brook is conveniently located along the Raritan Valley Line passenger railroad, which runs to Newark and New York City, as well as Interstate 287, State Highway Route 22, and Route 28 /Union Avenue.
