A flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.
While there are many different types of influenza, the flu vaccine protects against the strains that research indicates will be most common.
SBCHC offers an annual clinic to distribute the shot, beginning in the fall and lasting into the winter flu season. All are welcome to attend, but patients who are at more of a risk for flu complications, including young children, adults over 65, pregnant women and individuals with chronic medical conditions, are highly encouraged to visit.
Mobile Flu Shot Clinic
Our goal at SBCHC is to provide accessible, high quality care to all. So during the last flu season, we took our mission to the streets to deliver convenient care to local businesses, residents and passersby. Our first mobile flu shot clinic was stationed in front of Foodies on West Broadway, Mt. Washington Bank on East Broadway and the Seaport Boston Hotel on the waterfront to provide vaccinations to the surrounding community.
Please visit our events calendar to see when the next flu clinic will be held.
