FREE Flu Vaccines Available
Coney Island Hospital is offering FREE Flu Vaccines for adults and children. We are experiencing the worst flu season since at least 2009, and with influenza activity spreading in New York State, it is essential that everyone be immunized.
You can receive your vaccination in the Tower building at Coney Island Hospital, Room T108, from 9am to 8pm, or at any of the Mobile Units located at: MCU Park in Coney Island; in Gerritsen Beach at 43 Seba Avenue or on Staten Island at Midland Avenue and Olympia Blvd - 7 days per week excluding holidays.
Since the flu virus can spread through coughing or sneezing, it is important that family members and people who regularly come in contact with young children or individuals at high risk get a flu shot. Individuals who have flu-like symptoms like a fever, cough, or sore throat, should call their doctor first before heading to the hospital. Many New Yorkers are going to the emergency room with mild symptoms; there’s no need to go to the hospital unless your doctor advises you to.
