Health Department's Free Flu Vaccines Offered at Annual Clinics

SOMERVILLE – The cool air is a sign that the cold and flu season is approaching, which means it’s time for the annual flu vaccine clinics offered by the City of Somerville Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The clinics offer free flu vaccines for Somerville residents ages four and older (children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). They will be held starting on October 5, 2017 at various times and locations in the community until the City’s supply of vaccine is exhausted. Due to limited supply and availability of nurses, vaccines will be offered during official flu clinic hours only.

Clinics will be held as follows until the supply of vaccines is exhausted*:
