Clinics will be held at:
St. Joseph’s Court, North Adams, Monday, Nov. 28 from 1-3 p.m.
The Millhouse Apartments in Adams, Monday, Dec. 5 from 9-11 a.m.
and at the Barrett House Apartments in Adams, Wednesday, Dec. 7 from 11 a.m. to noon.
Flu shots may also be obtained during walk-in clinics on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. at the VNA & Hospice of Northern Berkshire, 535 Curran Highway, North Adams.
“Seasonal” flu vaccine helps to protect individuals against three identified strains of flu. An annual seasonal flu shot is recommended for anyone over the age of 65 or who has a chronic illness, and for those who wish to reduce the risk of contracting the flu this winter. It is still important to be vaccinated against seasonal flu, which is responsible for thousands of deaths each year.
