City to hold free flu clinics

Mayor Carlo DeMaria and the Everett Health Department will hold flu clinics on the following dates:

  • Monday, December 11 from 1 p.m.-7 p.m.,
  • Thursday, December 14 from 1 p.m.-7 p.m.,
  • Monday, December 18 from 1 p.m.-7 p.m.,
  • Thursday, December 21 from 1 p.m.-7 p.m., and
  • Thursday, December 28 from 1 p.m.-7 p.m.

All of these clinics will be held in the Health Department at City Hall (484 Broadway, Rm. 20). These clinics are open to all Everett residents aged three and older and are free of charge. No appointment is necessary. It is required that you bring your Health Insurance and or/Medicare cards, as the Department is able to be reimbursed for administration of the vaccine. Please remember to wear a short-sleeve shirt. Children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The seasonal vaccine this year includes protection against the seasonal and H1N1 vaccine strains. At this clinic we are offering a traditional flu shot as well as the intradermal and high-dose flu vaccine. The intradermal is an option for people aged 18 to 64. The high-dose flu vaccine is available for people aged 65 or older.

For more information call the Flu Hotline at 617-394-2257, or if you are unable to make these times, please call the Public Health Nurse at 617-394-2314 to schedule an appointment.
