Post Date:09/24/2020 12:41 PM

Each fall, the Glastonbury Health Department offers clinics to provide the influenza vaccine to town residents. Three clinics will be held at the Riverfront Community Center during the month of October. Due to the Coronavirus, appointments will be required in advance and face masks/coverings are mandatory for entry (no exceptions). Additionally, due to a policy change by the State of Connecticut, Hartford HealthCare at Home can only vaccinate individuals who are 19 years of age or older, therefore 2 of the 3 clinics will be available to residents ages 19+ only. Parents with young children are encouraged to attend the family day clinic on Saturday, October 10, where vaccinations will be provided by First Choice Health Centers to individuals ages 6 months and older with all insurance is accepted. Parents may also contact their child’s healthcare provider to receive a flu shot.

Appointments will be available on a first come, first served basis on the dates and times below.
