The flu season is beginning, and the Cooperative Public Health Service (CPHS) is offering influenza vaccines (with no insurance co-pay) to area residents at regularly scheduled wellness clinics throughout the region.
Everyone six months of age or older needs a flu vaccine. When we all are vaccinated, we build community immunity that protects the elderly, children, and those with compromised immune systems from the terrible effects of influenza.
For information on prevention, symptoms, and treatment of influenza, visit www.flu.gov

Things to know: Bring your insurance cards – most forms of insurance are accepted – or, if you do not have a billable insurance, bring $20 for the fee for adults and $10 for kids. Both injectable and flu mist formulas for kids will be available this year. Regular or Senior High-Dose formulas available for those over age 65.
Contact Lisa White, RN, Regional Public Health Nurse of FRCOG, at 413-665-1400 x114 for updated schedule and more information or visit this page regularly.
Other Town Clinics will be posted here as we get information on them.
