City of Pittsfield’s Health Department to Host Flu Vaccine Clinic

 

Have you received your flu shot yet? If not, the City of Pittsfield’s Health Department will be hosting a flu vaccine clinic 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 25 on the mezzanine level at 100 North St.

Appointments are not needed and there isn’t a cost; however, attendees are asked to bring their insurance card to the clinic.

Because the flu virus is always changing, it is important to get the flu vaccine every year. The most common symptoms of the flu are fever, cough, and sore throat.  The flu can also include body aches, headache, chills, runny nose and tiredness.  Flu virus is easily spread from person to person.  Those who are sick with the flu should make sure to drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest, eat healthy foods, stay home to avoid spreading the flu to others and wash their hands often.
