Regional Flu Vaccination Clinics

Updated: Apr 11

The North Shore Public Health Collaborative will be hosting a series of flu vaccination clinics that are open to residents of all eight member communities: Beverly, Danvers, Lynn, Marblehead, Nahant, Peabody, Salem, and Swampscott.


These clinics are funded in part through the National Council on Aging Vaccine Uptake Initiative. Thanks to this grant funding, eligible individuals can enter to win a door prize (Market Basket gift cards while supplies last). Eligible individuals must be age 60+ or have a disability, get vaccinated at one of these clinics, and complete a brief survey afterward.

FAQ

Who needs a flu vaccine?

Everyone ages 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every year.

If you’re at higher risk of developing serious flu complications, flu vaccination is especially important. These groups include:

  • Adults 65 and older

  • Adults with certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, and chronic kidney

  • Pregnant people

  • Children younger than 5 years, but especially those younger than 2 years old.

When should I get my flu shot?

Flu season starts in the fall, and most of the time, flu activity peaks between December and February. The CDC recommends that people get vaccinated early in the season, ideally by October 30.


Can I get the flu even if I'm vaccinated?

Getting the vaccine reduces your chance of getting sick. It’s possible to catch the flu even if you’re vaccinated, but the vaccine reduces the severity of illness if you do get sick. If you’re vaccinated and still get the flu, you have a lower chance of getting seriously ill or needing hospitalization.


What do I need to bring to my appointment?

Please bring your health insurance card and wear short sleeves.


What if I don't have insurance?

Individuals without health insurance can receive a vaccine at no cost.


What if I'm unable to leave my home to be vaccinated?

Please contact your local health department to request a home visit.
