1/5/10: H1N1 Flu Clinic on January 12, 2010
The Town of Concord Health Division in partnership with Emerson Hospital Home Care will offer an H1N1 (swine) flu vaccination clinic. The clinic will take place on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Concord-Carlisle High School cafeteria, located at 500 Walden Street in Concord. In recognition of the increased availability of vaccine from the federal government, this clinic will provide vaccination to all members of the general public, not just those in priority groups.
“Flu is unpredictable, and we don’t know yet whether we’ll see another wave of illness this flu season,” said Brent Reagor, Public Health Director for the Town of Concord. “So it’s important that we continue our efforts to provide as many opportunities as we can for residents to get vaccinated – this year, more than ever.”
The clinic takes place during National Influenza Vaccination Week, a nationwide awareness campaign developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to highlight that vaccination is the single most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones from flu.
All vaccines will be provided at the upcoming clinic free of charge to those who pre-register for the clinic at the Town of Concord Web site (www.concordma.gov.)
