FAMILY FRIENDLY FLU CLINIC
The Town of Framingham is having a Flu Clinic on Saturday October 18th 2014 at the McCarthy School on Flagg Drive from 10am to 2pm for all ages 6 months and up. There is NO COST for this vaccination. If you have Health Insurance, please bring your card(s) with you.
Get vaccinated before the flu season starts.
The Center for Disease Control recommends that everyone 6 months of age and up get a yearly flu vaccine. At this time, there is very little influenza activity. Flu season typically starts in October and can last through May.
Vaccination of high risk persons is especially important to decrease their risk of severe flu illness.
People at high risk of serious flu complications include young children, pregnant women, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease and people 65 years and older.
Vaccination also is important for health care workers, and other people who live with or care for high risk people to keep from spreading flu to high risk people.
Children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness, but are too young to be vaccinated. People who care for them should be vaccinated instead.
