Flu shot clinics start this month

Flu season is fast approaching and Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will hold seven flu clinics in Wilton this fall.
Anyone three years of age or older can receive the seasonal flu vaccine at these clinics and there is no residency requirement.
All flu clinics are conducted on a first-come, first-served basis and appointments are not necessary. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or
legal guardian.
The cost of a flu shot is $42, payable by cash or check, or it can be billed directly to Medicare Part B, Anthem, Aetna or HealthyCT. Bring insurance cards to the clinic.  Those wishing to receive the flu vaccine are encouraged to wear short sleeves or sleeves that are easy to roll up.
