Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Jr. and the Everett Health Department would like to announce the next Seasonal Flu and Pneumonia Clinic open to the Everett community.

The Clinic will be held on Monday, December 6 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Health Department on the second floor of City Hall at 484 Broadway in Everett.

This clinic is free of charge and open to anyone over two years of age. No appointment is necessary and vaccine will be issued on a first come, first served basis. We ask that you bring your Health Insurance and/or Medicare cards, as we are able to be reimbursed for administration of the vaccine. Children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

For flu vaccine we are offering the traditional “flu shot” as well as “flu mist,” a vaccine mist that is administered via the nose. The “flu shot” is available for people over 2 years of age and women who are pregnant. The “flu mist” is available for people between the ages of 2 and 49 who are healthy and not pregnant. Both the “flu shot” and the “flu mist are available for children under 9 years of age who meet the requirement for a booster vaccine after one month. The pneumonia vaccine will also be offered free of charge at this clinic.
