Guests receiving a flu vaccine will receive FREE zoo admission!

Head to Elmwood Park Zoo, located at 1661 Harding Boulevard in Norristown, on Saturday, October 9, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon and say boo to the zoo.

Anyone 3 years and older who gets vaccinated will receive FREE zoo admission! Appointments are recommended, walk-ins welcome.

Register here.

Use the QR code to register for your flu shot at the zoo.

Flu vaccination is the best way to prevent flu and its complications. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season.

Flu vaccination can significantly lower the risk of influenza-related illness, hospitalization, and death. And because flu and COVID-19 share many symptoms, preventing flu means fewer people will need to seek medical care and testing for flu as well as COVID-19, saving time, money, and stress.

So, say boo to the flu at the zoo this Saturday!
