2021 Flu Clinic

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone six months and older receive an annual flu shot, with rare exception. 

To protect the health and safety of our staff and clients, flu vaccines are by appointment and walk-in at the Immunization Clinic located in the Health Department, 1235 Ramsey Street, Fayetteville. 

The public should call 910-321-7116 to make an appointment to receive the flu vaccine. Upon arrival at the clinic, participants will complete a short registration form and if insured, a copy of insurance cards will be captured, and the insurance company will be billed. Participants will not receive a bill for flu vaccines. Flu shots are FREE to all regardless of insurance status.

Children 18 and younger can also receive a free flu vaccine through the Vaccines for Children program. Anyone accompanying a minor must show proof of custody.

Don’t delay! You can receive your flu shot at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccine. 

 

Community Flu Shot Clinics

The Health Department is also partnering with community agencies to offer free flu vaccine clinics throughout the County. No appointments are required for community flu clinics. Additional community clinics will be added as they are scheduled.

Anyone receiving a flu vaccination will fill out a consent and registration form.

Differences Between COVID-19 and Flu

Information from the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) on differences between Flu and COVID-19

There are some key differences between flu and COVID-19. COVID-19 seems to spread more easily than flu. However, as more people become fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 should slow down. COVID-19 can cause more serious illnesses in some people. It can also take longer before people show symptoms and people can be contagious for longer. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus. 

Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis. Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but there are some key differences between the two. Learn more about the differences between COVID-19 and the flu from the CDC.
