Beverly Hospital is running a limited supply flu vaccine clinic on Sunday, Jan. 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The hospital, a member of Lahey Health which also owns Beverly Hospital at Danvers, said it is offering the clinic in response to the recent rise in the number of influenza cases.
The flu clinic will be held in the main entrance of Beverly Hospital. The clinic is open to members of the public ages 18-64. You do not need to be a Beverly Hospital patient to receive a flu vaccine.
Following are some helpful tips to consider before attending the flu clinic:
- You should not receive the flu vaccine if you have a productive cough or fever.
- You must bring your insurance card and present it when checking in at the flu clinic.
- You may not be currently pregnant or currently breast-feeding.
- This walk-in clinic is for members of the public only, not employees of Lahey Health.
Due to a limited supply of flu vaccine, only 200 shots will be administered at the clinic.
