Five Things: Flu Shot Clinic, Land Trust
Your guide for life in East Greenwich today, Jan. 15.
Community Flu Shot Clinic: If you have not gotten a flu shot yet, there will be a Community Vaccination Clinic on Tuesday, Jan. 15, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Cole Middle School. Anyone 6 months or older can get the flu shot. In addition the pneumonia and Tdap vaccines will be available. (*According to the CDC, vaccine protection for pertussis, tetanus, and diphtheria fades with time, so all adults 19 and older who have not previously received a Tdap vaccine need a booster shot. Experts recommend adults receive a tetanus and diphtheria booster [called Td] every 10 years and substitute a Tdap vaccine for one of the boosters. The dose of Tdap can be given earlier than the 10-year mark.) There is no out-of-pocket expense. If you have insurance, bring your card. If you have questions, contact the Wellness Company, 401-461-0662.
