Every year the seasonal flu makes millions of people across the country sick, some seriously. Seniors are particularly susceptible to catching the virus. As part of its mission to keep people healthy this flu season, Emerson Hospital Home Care and the Concord Health Department and Council on Aging will hold a flu and pneumonia immunization clinic on Thursday, October 20 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Harvey Wheeler Building, 1276 Main Street in Concord.
Participants must be residents of Concord and age 65 years or older. No appointment is needed, please bring your health insurance cards to the clinic. Costs will be covered by the Concord Health Department for anyone without insurance coverage.
Vaccinations during the clinic are reported to the Massachusetts Immunization Information System as now required by law. This system keeps track of all vaccination records for the state and is managed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. For more information, please contact the Concord Health Department at 978-318-3275.
