SOMERVILLE – With cold and flu season rapidly approaching, the City of Somerville’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announces its
annual flu vaccine clinics for Somerville residents ages five and older (children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). The clinics will be held weekly through December, or until the City’s supply of vaccine is exhausted. Due to limited supply and availability of nurses, vaccines will be offered during official clinic hours only.
Clinics will be held as follows, until the supply of vaccines is exhausted:
• Thursday evenings Oct. through Dec.: City Hall Annex, 50 Evergreen Ave. 5 – 7 p.m.
• 4 November (Vote & Vax): East Somerville Community School, 7 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. – 7 p.m.
o Please use Glen St. entrance.
o ESCS does not have to be your polling location to receive a vaccination at this clinic.
Clinics are open for residents and non-residents ages five years and older. The mist formulation of vaccine is available for people under the age of 49 that meet specific medical screening requirements. While there is no charge for vaccinations, attendees are asked to bring an insurance card if available. Residents requiring additional assistance or other accommodations should contact the Health Department at 617-625-6600 ext. 4300.
The City will add or adjust clinic schedules as necessary, and more information can always be found at http://www.somervillema.gov or by calling 311.
