• Happy Thanksgiving from the North Georgia Health District! Our district offices in Dalton will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, November 23 and 24. All our Public Health Departments and services in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield Counties will also be closed both days. Best wishes from us to you for a healthy and safe holiday!

Don’t forget to drive by and arm yourself against the flu quickly and conveniently at Gilmer County Health Department’s Drive-by Flu Shot Clinic. The clinic will be held on Friday, October 10th from 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. at the First United Methodist Church located at 75 McCutchen Street in Ellijay.

This year, the Drive-by Flu Shot Clinic will protect you with the 4-in-1 quadrivalent flu vaccine that guards against four strains of flu in one shot. Also, the Fluzone High-Dose Flu shot will be offered to people ages 65 and older. Cost of the 4-in-1 flu shot is $25 and the high-dose shot is $50. Cash, checks, Medicare and Medicaid plus Aetna and BlueCross BlueShield Health Insurance will be accepted.

The best way to arm against the flu is with a flu shot -- the most convenient way to get that shot is at the Drive-by Flu Shot Clinic in Ellijay!
