Looking for a Flu Clinic?

Looking for a Flu Clinic? is a flu locator web site that lists public flu clinics in Massachusetts. Currently, the clinics listed are providing season flu immunizations and some clinics are offering pneumococcal (“pneumonia”) immunizations.

The site also has links to the most current information on both seasonal and H1N1 vaccines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the CDC. When it becomes available, the site will list public clinics that provide H1N1 swine flu immunizations.

Also, a seasonal flu immunization clinic for adults age 18 and older will be held on Wednesday, November 11, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Martha's Vineyard Regional High School. Vehicles must register at one of two staging areas at Waban Park in Oak Bluffs or at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury. Those arriving by bicycle, on foot or by public transportation may report directly to the high school.

It is recommended that you attend this clinic if you: are 50 years of age or older; an adult under age 50 with a chronic medical condition being treated by a physician; will be pregnant during the flu season; or if you are a health care worker or first responder with direct patient contact. A registration form is required; pick one up at the library, or download and print the online version.
