Health Department Recommends COVID-19 Boosters and Flu Shots

Monday, November 21, 2022

The Cambridge Public Health Department encourages people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and the flu.

The COVID-19 vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. People age 5 and older should receive boosters. A new bivalent booster became available this fall that offers protection against multiple COVID-19 variants. The bivalent booster is recommended for all adults and children age 5 and older. Getting all recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine gives you the highest level of protection.

The flu vaccine is also recommended for everyone age 6 months and older. Residents age 65 and older should ask for high-dose flu vaccine. Learn more here.

Cambridge Health Alliance also offers flu shots and COVID-19 vaccines/boosters to the public at its pharmacies at Cambridge Hospital, 1493 Cambridge Street, and East Cambridge Care Center, 163 Gore Street.

Both COVID-19 and flu vaccines are widely available at local pharmacies and many doctors’ offices. To find COVID-19 vaccine locations, visit Vaxfinder.mass.gov.
