Updated 1:02 pm, Saturday, October 3, 2015
The town’s Health Department plans two flu-vaccination clinics in October.
The clinics for town residents 5 years old and over will take place Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the gymnasium of the town’s Bigelow Center for Senior Activities, 100 Mona Terrace.
The flu vaccine will be available as an injection or, for healthy people 5 to 49 years old, as a nasal spray. The high-dose injectable vaccine will also be available for those 65 years old and over. The pneumonia vaccine will also be available at the clinics.
Medicare Part B, Connecticare, Aetna, Cigna and Anthem are all accepted for the inoculations, and there is no co-pay. Cash price for the flu vaccine is $25 and $65 for the pneumonia vaccine.
For quicker procession, people can print out the vaccine consent form — at www.fairfieldct.org/health —and bring to the clinic to be completed. Patients should also have their insurance card with them, and wear clothes that make it easy to expose the upper arm.
