Somerville residents three years and older eligible for vaccine; Vaccine Clinics begin in September

SOMERVILLE – The cool air is a sign that the cold and flu season is approaching, which means it’s time for the annual flu vaccine clinics offered by the City of Somerville Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The clinics offer free flu vaccines for Somerville residents ages three (3) and older (children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Clinics start on Thursday, September 20, and will be held at various times and locations in the community until the City’s supply of vaccine is exhausted. Due to limited availability, vaccines will be offered during official flu clinic hours only.
