Interim Health Commissioner Patrick Maloney is pleased to announce that the Brookline Department of Public Health will hold a free flu clinic for residents next month.

The event will take place on Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 09:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m., inside Schluntz Gymnasium, Brookline High School, 115 Greenough Street, Brookline, MA 02445.

All Brookline adults, seniors and children 6 months and older are welcome.

Residents, who wish to attend the clinic, are asked to register in advance by visiting here, calling 617-730-2641 or scanning the QR code below.

Residents are asked to wear a short-sleeved or loose-fitting shirt. Face masks are required. Residents also are reminded to stay home if they feel ill.

Additionally, residents are asked to bring all insurance and Medicare cards, and a form of ID with them to the clinic. Individuals without health insurance are welcome; there will be no charge.

The high-dose influenza vaccine, which is authorized for individuals age 65 and up, will not be available at the flu clinic; limited Flu Mist will be available.

“Flu season is approaching quickly, and it is especially important to be protected from all viruses this year given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Commissioner Maloney. “We encourage all residents to attend this clinic with their families in order to stay safe, healthy and protected from the flu this winter.”
