Norwood Health Dept. Flu Shot Clinics

Shots for everyone!

Take it from us, the Norwood Health Dept. nurses give the best “no ouch” flu shots you’ll ever get. So far, there’s plenty of vaccine to go around, so anyone can get a shot, regardless of age, health issues, etc. Take your choice of 4 Flu Shot Clinics:

1. Thursday, Oct. 4; 8:30 - 4:30 p.m.: Health Dept., 2059 Sherman Ave.
2. Tuesday, Oct. 16; 8:30 - 4:30 p.m.: Health Dept. 2059 Sherman Ave.
Schedule an appointment: 458-4600

3. Walk-in clinic:
Tuesday, November 6, Election Day: Health Dept., 2069 Sherman Ave.
No appointment necessary. Signs will be posted at Norwood precincts inviting voters to stop by that day for a shot.

4. Wednesday, Oct. 24: Community/Senior Center, 1810 Courtland Ave.
We’ll post the time as soon as it’s arranged, or call 458-4600 next week.

Flu shot cost: $15 except for those on Medicare. The Health Dept. will bill the cost to ALL forms of Medicare, i.e. HMO Medicares, etc.

Pneumonia shots
$35 pneumonia shots are available, too. These are not billed to Medicare or any other insurances. Always check with your physician about if and when you should get one of these. The Norwood Health Dept. recommends waiting 7 years between pneumonia shots if you get one before age 65; after 65, get just one shot, but do check with your physician. Call the Health Dept. at 458-4600 for more info.
