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.
Free Drive-Thru Flu Clinics Scheduled in the District
Ledge Light Health District will host several free drive-thru flu clinics during the month of December. Individuals will be required to wear a mask, stay in their vehicle, and practice social distancing. Regular flu shots and flu mist will be provided at no cost to individuals 19 years and older. District residents that need the high dose vaccine should contact their pharmacy, medical provider, or the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Southeastern Connecticut.
