Helpline - Now With Flu Info, Too!

January 15, 2010

Health Care for All’s HelpLine and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health are teaming up to help answer your questions about H1N1 and the seasonal flu. Each of our counselors has been trained by infectious disease experts at DPH to give callers informed up-to-date information in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin.

You may have heard that Massachusetts has recently received more than 3 million doses of the H1N1 flu vaccine. This means that there is plenty of vaccine for anyone who wants to protect themselves against the illness. It’s not too late to get your flu shot. In Massachusetts, flu season lasts until April. You can find a flu clinic nearest to you by going to flu.masspro.org/clinic or by calling our HelpLine at 1-800-272-4232.
