On Saturday, January 27, 2018, Ledge Light Health District host a free flu clinic for children (over the age of 6 months) and adults. The clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the LLHD office, 216 Broad Street in New London. No appointment is necessary. Flu shots will be available on a first come, first served basis. 

Even though how well the vaccine works does vary from year to year, the flu vaccine remains the single best tool we have in preventing flu infections, flu-related hospitalizations, and flu-related deaths. Following other basic healthy habits like cleaning your hands often with warm soapy water or an alcohol-based sanitizer, not touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands, and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when you cough or sneeze can also help prevent the spread of flu.
