Find a Flu Clinic Near You (RAP UPDATE)

October 7, 2009

Flu season is coming upon us quickly. The Massachusetts Public Flu Clinic Finder website (flu.masspro.org)locates public flu clinics in Massachusetts. Right now there are about 800, with more being added every day.

Currently, the clinics listed are providing season flu immunizations and some clinics are offering pneumococcal (“pneumonia”) immunizations. The site also has links to the most current information on both seasonal and H1N1 vaccines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the CDC. When the H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine becomes available, the website will list the public clinics that are providing this vaccine. For individuals who do not have access to the internet, please call 211. Assistance is available 24 hours/day.
