Where in Wellesley to Get a Flu Shot

The Wellesley Health Department offers information on flu shots.

 

Earlier this week, the Red Cross reported flu cases were “widespread,” and in Boston on Wednesday, Mayor Tom Menino declared the flu outbreak a health emergency after the city saw a tenfold increase in flu cases over last year.

The Wellesley Health Department has listed on the town website information on the flu and the flu vaccine. The health department recommends those who did not get a flu shot this season to contact their doctor, their child's pediatrician, or visit a local pharmacy. Walgreens offers flu shots to those 18 and up, while some CVS' have flu vaccines for adults and children. 

The health department also directs residents to visit www.flu.gov to learn the difference between colds and the flu, and what to do to protect yourself and your family from getting the flu.
