If you haven’t gotten a flu shot yet this season, it’s not too late to get it now! The timing of flu is very unpredictable and can vary from season to season. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the United States between December and February. Just because temperatures have been mild, doesn’t mean flu can’t strike. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
The Bedford Board of Health is offering the following additional flu clinics in an effort to provide flu vaccination to Bedford residents, returning college students and town employees:
Wednesday, December 16th, 2 pm-4 pm
Tuesday, December 29th, 2 pm – 4 pm
These clinics will take place in the Flint Room on the 2nd Floor of the Town Center Building (yellow building behind Town Hall) located at 12 Mudge Way. These walk-in flu clinics are free of charge and open to Bedford residents and town employees 8 years of age and older. Please wear clothing that allows for easy access to your arm for vaccine administration. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or bring a signed vaccine registration form from the parent/guardian and a copy of the parent/guardian’s official picture ID.
Before you arrive, save a step and download and complete the registration form from our website! The Board of Health asks that you bring your medical insurance cards to the clinic you attend as we may be able to be reimbursed for the cost of the vaccine.
