H1N1 flu and seasonal flu clinics today
Visiting Nurse Services of Newport and Bristol Counties will hold a public H1N1 flu and seasonal flu vaccine clinic for people ages 18 and older from 1 to 4 p.m. today, Thursday, Feb. 11.
Clinics will be held at VNS of Newport and Bristol Counties’ Portsmouth office located at 1184 East Main Rd.
For H1N1 immunization, adults ages 18 to 49 will receive the intranasal vaccine. Adults ages 50 and older, and high-risk individuals, will receive the injectable vaccine.
Seasonal flu vaccine will also be available at the clinics.
Bring your insurance card. Because the government is providing the vaccine at no cost, insurers will only be charged for the cost of administering the vaccine. There is no charge for those who do not have insurance.
