Flu Shots Will Be Given On Some Early Voting Days In Greenburgh

GREENBURGH, NY — Flu shots will be offered outdoors at the Greenburgh Town Hall during early voting.

Supervisor Paul Feiner said the Greenburgh Health Center will be administering the flu vaccines Monday through Friday next week.

“Many people are reluctant to get flu shots inside medical offices or pharmacies,” he said. “And, flu shots are so important during this pandemic.”

Feiner said offering the shots outdoors on some early voting days sends a message to the community that one can “participate in democracy and stay healthy so you can enjoy our democracy after election day.”

If interested, people can schedule getting the flu shot ahead of time and provide your insurance information and register online. Call the Greenburgh Health Center at 914-989-7600 or email.

Shots will be given during the following early voting times at the Greenburgh Town Hall:

  • 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26

  • Noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27

  • 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28

  • Noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29

  • 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30

People wanting to get flu shots need to bring their insurance card, photo ID and completed consent form. Uninsured or self-pay will cost $30.

Patients will be required to wear face masks and answer COVID-19 screening questions. The immunization area will include physical distancing, and all nurses will be wearing masks, gloves and face shields.

Greenburgh Town Hall is at 177 Hillside Ave.
