Reminder: Medication disposal/flu shots/booster seats at NHD tomorrow

Following are excerpts from Health Commissioner Pamela Walker-Bauer’s 9/2/10 guest blog:

"In a collaborative effort to combat prescription drug abuse, the Norwood Police Department and the Norwood Health Department will host a “Medication Disposal Day” on Saturday, September 25, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Members of the community are encouraged to bring expired, unneeded and unused prescriptions, as well as over-the-counter medications to the Norwood Health Department located at 2059 Sherman Avenue (across from the Norwood Middle School).

The event is held in conjunction with the Norwood Health Department’ Annual Saturday Flu Vaccination Clinic. The cost of the flu vaccine is $18.00. Plenty of vaccine is available; however, citizens are asked to contact the Norwood Health Department to make an appointment in order to ensure proper staffing...Flu shots are also available by appointment on other days.

Saturday, September 25 is “National Car Seat Check Saturday.” In recognition of this event, free Booster Seats will be available by appointment to those who are eligible. Contact the Norwood Health Department to determine eligibility and to schedule an appointment.

Anyone bringing in medication, receiving a flu shot and/or receiving a Booster seat, will receive some special items. Contact the Norwood Health Department at 458-4600 to schedule your appointment or for questions."
