It is not necessary to be an established patient at Grace Cottage in order to get a flu shot at this clinic. Masks are required and anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian.
Most insurance covers this preventive health measure; bring an ID and insurance card with you. If uninsured, payment for the flu shot is expected at the time of service.
An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to avoid getting the flu and spreading it to others. It takes about two weeks for protection to develop after vaccination. The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a yearly flu vaccine. People over age 65 or those with any chronic disease, such as diabetes or asthma, have a higher risk of contracting the flu and are especially urged to get the shot. Two different flu shots are being offered this year, one for those age 6 months to 64 and another for those who are 65 and older.
Flu shots are also available weekdays by appointment. Call (802) 365-4331. Grace Cottage is located at 185 Grafton Road, Route 35.
