Get a Flu Vaccine

The 2020-2021 flu season has arrived. It’s more important than ever to take steps to prevent flu. Getting a flu vaccine is the #1 way to protect yourself and others from getting or spreading the flu. As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we strongly encourage everyone to get a flu vaccine, especially those who are at a higher risk for getting severe illness and complications from the flu, including people with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, children over 6 months old, and adults over 65 years old.

Current Wentworth Health Partners patients can contact their primary care office to schedule a vaccine. High-dose vaccines are also still available for those over 65.

Important information about COVID-19

As part of the hospital's safe care commitment, all patients are screened for possible symptoms of COVID-19 and given a mask to wear. We ask that you only attend our flu shot clinics if you are healthy and well. If you have upper respiratory symptoms including fever, sore throat, or cough, please postpone your visit.

The flu shot does not protect against COVID-19.
