As you know, getting a flu vaccine is one important step you can take to keep you and your family healthy, and it is terrific that many of you are trying to make plans to get vaccinated.
The Health Department will be providing flu vaccine (for adults and children 3 years of age and older) every Thursday evening between 5-7 P.M. at the City Hall Annex (50 Evergreen Avenue) through January 31, 2013. There will be no clinic on Thursday, November 22 due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. We may resume after the new year depending on whether we have depleted our vaccine supply or not. We will be offering vaccine at no out-of-pocket charge during these clinic hours, but if you are insured, please bring your card with you as we may be able to recoup a portion of the cost of providing this service. Please call the Public Health Nurses at 617-625-6600, ext. 4320 if you have any questions.
As is always the case in flu season, take care of yourself, cover your cough; wash your hands often.
