~ Submitted by the Bedford Health Department
The Health Department and the Council on Aging are pleased to announce two, FREE high-dose flu clinics in an effort to prevent Bedford seniors from getting the flu. Both clinics by appointment only for Bedford Seniors aged 65+. Please register using the links below or call the Bedford COA at 781-275-6825 if you need assistance making an appointment.
As part of the online registration process, you will be directed to a link to a registration form that you will print and complete with your contact and health insurance information. While the vaccine is free, receiving insurance reimbursements enables the Health Department to perpetuate this town-wide program year after year. You will need to bring one completed form for each person receiving a vaccination to the designated appointment time. We have plenty of vaccine so arriving early provides no benefit and may result in a longer wait time for everyone attending. If you register for an appointment over the phone with the COA staff, you will complete your form when you arrive at the clinic.

As a reminder, in accordance with the current Massachusetts COVID-19 Mask Requirements, clinic participants will be required to wear a face covering while visiting the vaccination site(s). Please bring a copy of your ID, insurance cards, and a face covering. We ask that anyone receiving a vaccination wear clothing that allows for easy access to their arm for vaccine administration.
