I will be offering both high dose (trivalent) for those 65 and older and regular (quadrivalent) flu shots this year to the residents of Sandwich. As soon as I have information from the drug company about vaccine shipping dates, I will post the clinic dates and times. I expect the clinics to be in early October, a good month for us as our flu season on the Cape usually begins in January. As usual, those folks who are having chemotherapy, surgery, or other major procedures can call me to schedule specific dates for their shot.
Regular flu clinics are finished for the year but appointments can still be made on an individual basis. Please call 508-833-8020 to schedule an appointment. Continue reading
