2011-12 Influenza Season Free Local Health Clinics

The Health Department and Boards of Health of Cape Ann and Hamilton and Wenham will be providing free influenza vaccine at clinics and events throughout the area over the coming months. We have ample supply this year and the vaccine is free for everyone.

Flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over six months of age. Anyone wishing to receive vaccine should bring their insurance card so we can bill their insurance company.
