[ARCHIVED] Flu Clinic on October 20

Flu Shot

The Health Department is holding morning flu clinic on Thursday, October 20, 2022 for residents ages 18+. This is a second clinic for our community.

Advance registration is required; we are unable to guarantee vaccines for walk-ins. 

The clinic runs from 10 a.m. to noon p.m. and will take place at the Tolles Parsons Center (500 Washington Street). Homebound residents are encouraged to schedule an at-home appointment. Call the Health Department at 781-489-4356.  

Vaccines are free, but if you have health insurance, please bring your insurance card. 

TWO Flu vaccines are available: the standard dose and high-dose. The standard quadrivalent vaccine is available for ages 18+. Anyone aged 65+ is eligible to receive a high-dose vaccine. 

The high-dose quadrivalent vaccine is an inactivated vaccine (meaning it uses the killed version of the germ that causes a disease) approved for people 65+. This vaccine contains four times the antigen of standard-dose inactivated flu vaccines. Antigen is the part of the vaccine that helps your body build up protection against flu viruses.

For information or assistance you may also call the Flu Clinic phone line at 781-283-5730.
