The flu (short for "influenza") can be a serious illness. Every year, an average of 23,000 people in the U.S. die from flu-related complications.

The best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated every year. 

The 2011-2012 flu vaccine will protect against three strains of influenza, including the 2009 H1N1 virus.  A flu shot is recommended for all adults and children age 6 months and older.

Visit the Cambridge Public Health Department Website for more information and new protocols regarding flu clinics

Important Note:  While there is no charge for the flu shots, please bring your health insurance cards to the clinic. The Cambridge Public Health Department is able to bill insurance companies, which helps offset the cost of the purchased vaccine.
