  • Make healthy food choices. Grab a healthy snack on the go. Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • Be active. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park farther away and walk.
  • Protect yourself from disease and injury. Wash your hands for 20 seconds. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Put on a helmet, sunscreen, or insect repellent.
  • Manage stress. Don’t overschedule or overcommit. Take short breaks throughout the day.

Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. A new year is upon us, but the flu season has just begun.

If you haven't already had your seasonal flu shot now is the time.

Flu activity typically peaks in January and February and the flu season can last as late as May, so it's NOT too late to vaccinate.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health continues to offer flu shots for Atlantic County residents at two convenient locations.

Flu shots are available at the Stillwater Building in Northfield, Monday through Friday from 9 AM until noon, and in Hammonton at 310 Bellevue Avenue on Tuesdays from 10 AM noon. Appointments are not necessary.

Flu shots are available to any resident age 18 and older for a fee of $15. Pneumonia shots are also available for eligible residents age 65 and older for a fee of $25. There is no out-of-pocket fee for either shot for Medicare part B recipients who present their cards.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health: wishing you a happy and healthy new year.
