To further protect the public’s health and reduce the spread of the flu virus, the Connecticut Department of Public Health is working with local health departments to provide free and low cost influenza vaccines at several locations across the state on Saturday, Jan. 27.
Since the beginning of the flu season, more than 1,342 Connecticut residents have tested positive for influenza, and 615 people have been hospitalized with the illness.
Free flu shots are available to children 18-years-old and younger, and adults who do not have insurance will be provided the vaccine at no cost. Residents with insurance should bring their card and will be charged a small administrative fee, but will not be charged out of pocket for the vaccine.
Residents are able to attend any clinic listed regardless of the town they live in.
In Middlesex County, flu shots will be available at the Cromwell Town Hall, 41 West St., on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 860-638-4960.
