ClearChoiceMD to Offer Free Flu Shots at Upcoming Event
As flu season quickly approaches, ClearChoiceMD is serving its community by offering free flu vaccinations to the public at all ten urgent care locations during normal business hours on October 1 and 2. Locations include Belmont, Lebanon, Keene and Portsmouth in New Hampshire, Scarborough, Maine, and Rutland, Brattleboro, Berlin, South Burlington and Saint Albans in Vermont. No appointments are needed, and shots will be available to anyone 6 months of age and older.
“It’s important to get your flu vaccination before winter begins so your body has enough time to develop the antibodies that protect against influenza,” said Dr. Thomas H. Scott, the Director of Clinical Operations at ClearChoiceMD. “This makes early fall the best time to get your flu shot.”
Good health habits, combined with a flu vaccination, is the best way to avoid contracting or spreading the flu. Such habits include washing your hands frequently, disinfecting surfaces, covering your mouth and nose, getting enough sleep, a healthy diet, drinking lots of water and staying home if you are sick.
All flu vaccinations on October 1 and 2 will be free of charge and insurance will not be billed. Patients are asked to bring a photo ID, and encouraged to bring friends and family.
