Officials Urge Residents to Get a Flu Shot
Next Town Flu Clinic Scheduled for Nov. 12th
WNPR joined the Town of Glastonbury at its second of three flu clinics yesterday and they published an article emphasizing the importance of getting a flu shot this year and every year. As the article outlines, Connecticut sees a lot of flu activity, with more than 7,000 hospitalizations between the last two seasons, according to state surveillance reports. People most at risk of getting serious flu illness or complications are babies and young children, pregnant women, people with underlying medical conditions, and the elderly.

The Glastonbury Health Department offers 3 flu clinics every fall, with dates in October and November. The final Town Flu Clinic will be held on Tuesday, November 12th from 2-6pm in the Academy Cafeteria.
