A steady stream of people \u2014 from children to senior citizens \u2014 made their way to the Rimer Room at Wilton Library for flu shots on Monday, Oct. 16. Nurses from Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County were happy to accommodate them. The next opportunity to get a flu shot in Wilton will be Saturday, Oct. 21, from 1 to 3 at the Wilton YMCA on Danbury Road. The flu clinic is open to everyone in the community. Two types of flu shots are being offered. A high-dose vaccine is available to those 65 and older. It protects against three strains of flu: A\/Michigan, A\/Hong Kong, and B\/Brisbane. The quadrivalent vaccine given to everyone age 6 to 65 protects against those three strains as well as B\/Phuket. \u201cWe will offer the vaccines [in clinics] through November,\u201d said Katherine Lasberg, the nursing agency\u2019s community health coordinator. Those who cannot make a clinic in town may visit the agency\u2019s offices in I-Park on Main Avenue in Norwalk on Wednesday afternoons, from 3:30 to 5, through Nov. 15. After that, immunizations will be available throughout the winter, but it is advisable to call first to ensure a nurse will be in the office. Lasberg said the vaccine is in plentiful supply right now, although it is still early in the season. The cost of the vaccine is $50 for the regular dose and $68 for the high dose. Cash or check will be accepted, or it may be billed directly to Medicare Part B, Aetna, Anthem, Connecticare, Harvard Pilgrim, Multi Plan, or Wellcare. Information: 203-762-8958.
