Atlantic General Hospital, in collaboration with the Worcester County Health Department, is holding the third in a series of free community H1N1 vaccine clinics in northern Worcester County on Thursday, December 17.

The flu clinic, which is for all adults and children ages six months and older who wish to receive the vaccine, will be held in the main lobby of Atlantic General Hospital from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the 17th. Both the injected vaccine and flu mist will be available at this clinic.

A limited supply of the seasonal flu vaccine is also available for those who wish to receive it, on a first come first served basis. Individuals must be at least 13 years old to receive the seasonal flu vaccine. The seasonal vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine can be received during the same visit.

As with the seasonal flu shot, the H1N1 flu shots are made from eggs. If you are allergic to eggs, consult with your health care provider.
