Flu Vaccine Clinics
The Manchester Health Department is reminding the community of the importance of an annual flu shot to prevent influenza. Routine vaccination is the safest and most effective way to maintain good health and avoid spreading influenza to others. The 2012-2013 flu vaccine will protect against three influenza viruses which are expected to circulate in the United States this year. Tim Soucy, Public Health Director at the Manchester Health Department states, “Since 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that all persons 6 months of age and older should be vaccinated on an annual basis. Vaccination continues to be our best weapon in the prevention of flu and helps to maintain the health of our community.”
The Manchester Health Department is providing flu shots for adults on a walk-in basis between the hours of 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday through Friday. The fee is $20.00. No appointment is necessary.
Flu vaccine for children is available at regularly scheduled Immunization Clinics which are held on Monday from 1:30-3:30 PM, Tuesday from 9:00-11:30 AM and Thursday from 3:00-6:00 PM. Flu Vaccine for children is provided free of charge.
