In order to make it more convenient for residents, the city continues to partner with various community organizations, schools, churches and businesses to provide small, targeted clinics. Additionally, the city holds four public clinics.
The first public clinic will be held Oct. 10 from 3-6 p.m. at City Hall.
Anyone six months and older is eligible to receive a shot. Residents are asked to bring their insurance cards with them if they have one and wear short-sleeved shirts.
“An annual seasonal flu vaccine (either the flu shot or the nasal-spray flu vaccine) is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through that community,” says Peabody Public Health Nurse, Chassea Robinson.
Here's the schedule for the following three clinics:
- Oct. 15, 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. at City Hall
- Oct. 21, 9 a.m. - noon at the Torigian Center
- Oct. 29, 1-3 p.m. at City Hall
