contribute's picture

Flu season is upon us and the Hopkinton Health Department has partnered with AFC Urgent Care of Natick and Marlborough to provide two flu vaccination clinics to the residents and employees of Hopkinton. The clinics will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Crafts Room of the Senior Center located at 28 Mayhew Street, on October 21, 2019. A second clinic will run at St. John’s on October 25, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Residents and employees will need to bring your health insurance card with you! Participants are encouraged to pre-register utilizing the following web-form (http://bit.ly/hopkinton_flu_clinic). Please note that there are separate tabs for each date and that we will be scheduling appointments in 5 minute increments. Volunteers will be present to assist with registration. A confirmation email will be sent to each on-line registrant. A consent form will be attached to the email. Participants are encouraged to print and complete the attached consent form. Please bring the completed form to your appointment.

As an incentive to promote flu vaccination, participants attending the clinic will be eligible to receive a $10 gift card to Apex Entertainment.

If you cannot attend the clinic, you are welcome to visit AFC’s Natick or Marlborough location at any time during business hours to receive a flu shot. Once again, bring your insurance card. You can also see your primary care physician or another local pharmacy providing flu shots.

If your insurance does not cover flu shots or you lack insurance, please contact the Health Director, Shaun McAuliffe [email protected] or Nidia LaRoche [email protected]. Both can be reached at (508) 497-9725.
