Paulding County Hospital is partnering with the Paulding County Veterans Service Office to offer free flu shots for veterans.

To receive this benefit, veterans must get a voucher from the Paulding County Veterans Service Office at 810 E. Perry St. (next to the Health Department). You must present your military ID or show proof of honorable discharge to receive the voucher. Veterans Service Office hours are 9:30 a.m to 2 p.m. Tuesday – Friday.

Once you receive your voucher, you can get your flu shot at the Paulding County Hospital main campus, 1035 W. Wayne St., Paulding.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.

This year, Paudling County Hospital is exclusively offering quadrivalent flu vaccine. Quadrivalent flu vaccine protects against more strains of the influenza virus than previous flu vaccines.
