Flu Clinic at Avalon at Lexington Hills Apartment Complex

Flu clinic at Avalon at Lexington Hills Apartment Complex, 1000 Main Campus Drive, in the Community Room on Wednesday, January 7th, 2015, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

All vaccines will be provided at the upcoming clinic free of charge to Lexington residents on a first-come, first-serve basis. Although insurance is not required to get vaccinated at the clinic, residents are asked to bring their health insurance cards, as the town can be reimbursed for administering vaccine at no cost to the resident.

Lexington residents three years and older are eligible to be vaccinated at the Flu clinics as long as supplies last.  “Influenza is unpredictable, and we don’t yet know how severe of a flu season this year will be. The CDC recommends that all people 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine. However, public clinics typically only vaccinate those citizens who are three years of age and older.  
Vaccination is the single most effective way to protect yourself and your loved ones from flu - especially if you or someone you care about has a chronic health condition like asthma.” said Gerard F. Cody, Health Director.

Don’t get the flu, don’t spread the flu, and get vaccinated.

Once you reach the parking area outside of the main office at Avalon at Lexington Hills, there will be signage in the parking lot directing you to the clinic entrance.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by a Medical Reserve Corp volunteer. There will be Town of Lexington Health Division staff and Medical Reserve Corps volunteers wearing white vests and identification badges to answer any of your questions. Families should stay together, and will be vaccinated together.

If you cannot attend the clinic on January 7, 2015, and you would still like to get vaccinated, please contact David Neylon, Public Health Nurse by phone at (781) 698-4509 or by email at”
