Submitted by the Bedford Health Department
In an effort to protect people who live and work in Bedford from getting the Flu, the Bedford Health Department has scheduled Flu vaccination opportunities.
Clinics are open to people 6 months of age and older however for children age 6 months through 7 years old must have previously received a Flu vaccination in the past. These children should be connected to their pediatrician to obtain their first Flu vaccination. Those ages 8+ that have never received a Flu vaccination, will be asked to wait 15 minutes after receiving the Flu vaccine. The High Dose Flu will be available to those 65+. For clinic and registration information, visit the Flu Clinic Information – Community webpage. For school-based flu clinic opportunities, visit the Flu Clinic Information – School-Based webpage.
Appointments are required and everyone receiving the Flu Vaccine must complete a 2023-2024 Flu Vaccine Registration Form. Forms are available by clicking on the link above. Please complete a form for each person getting the Flu vaccination and bring it with you. Blank forms will be available at the clinic if you cannot print in advance. Please be sure to bring your insurance card(s) cards with you. We do ask that you wear clothing that will allow easy access to your shoulder area. Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
