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.
Walk-In Flu Clinic – December 1, 2021
Ledge Light Health District will be hosting a walk-in flu clinic on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 10 AM to 12 PM and 2 to 4 PM at 216 Broad Street in New London. A limited supply of regular flu shots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at no cost for adults 18 years and older. All participants must wear a mask and practice social distancing.
It is recommended that people wear a tank top, short sleeve shirt, or loose-fitting clothes for easy access to the upper arm. A flu consent form is required for each participant. Forms can be downloaded at www.llhd.org or obtained at the clinic.
