We are coming into winter, which means it is the season you are more likely to suffer from common respiratory illness. Colds and flu can wreak havoc on anyone during this time, but the addition of COVID makes the season even more challenging.
You can protect yourself against flu and COVID at Codman’s Respiratory Season Vaccine Clinics. Even if you have had a COVID vaccine and two boosters, the new bivalent booster will help you fight the omicron strains of COVID. Clinics are Nov. 1 and Nov. 8 from 9 am to 6:45 pm.
At our Respiratory Season Vaccine Clinics, not only can you protect yourself with these vaccines, you can also:
- Enter to win prizes
- Enjoy some food
- Balloon animals are available for kids
- Receive a gift card (only available for COVID vaccines)
Cases of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) have spiked early in children this year, and children’s hospitals have been filling with patients ill with the virus. While there is no vaccine for RSV, protecting children against flu and COVID can help prevent severe illness and keep kids out of the already-burdened hospitals.
Adults over 65 are more at risk for complications from flu and COVID, and vaccines are their best defense against severe illness. We encourage appointments, which you can make by calling 617-822-8271 or filling out an appointment request form (orange button on the right of this). We accept walk-in patients if space permits.
