Columbia County holding Flu vaccine drive-thru clinics



COLUMBIA COUNTY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Columbia County Department of Health has scheduled two community drive-thru clinics for the seasonal flu vaccine for all Columbia County residents ages two and up.

A separate online pre-registration is open for each clinic and pre-registration is required. If you do not register ahead of time, you cannot be vaccinated at that clinic. A separate registration form must be completed for each individual who is going to be vaccinated and a photo ID is required for each adult vaccinated.

To register for the clinic, go to the Columbia County Department of Health website, or see below.

If you do not have access to the internet you can call the drive-thru influenza clinic registration message line at 518-828-3358 extension 1310. Leave your name and phone number and a staff member will contact you to complete your registration.
