Flu Clinics

Each year the Town of Glastonbury Health Department offers multiple clinics to provide the influenza vaccine to town residents ages 9 and older.  This year, 2017, the following flu clinics are available:

Date  Location  Time Who?

To receive a flu shot at any of the clinics above, please bring your insurance card and photo ID, as well as a signed consent form to reduce wait times at the clinic.  Most insurance will be accepted.  You are also advised to wear a short sleeve or sleeveless shirt for easier access to the shoulder for the injection

This year the Health Department is partnering with the Healthy Choices program to administer Flublok quadrivalent influenza vaccine for those 18 years and up.  Flublok is manufactured using modern recombinant DNA technology which means it is not cultured in eggs & contains no egg proteins or gluten.  An alternate vaccine will be available for residents under the age of 18..

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months get a flu shot every year. The Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes death. A flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses. Get vaccinated to avoid getting the flu and to avoid giving the flu to your family and friends!  Click here to view tips on preventing the flu.
