Free Influenza Vaccination Clinics
Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital, with financial support from the Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital Foundation, provides FREE flu vaccination clinics each fall for persons aged 3 and above. Through a strong partnership, the SBAMH Foundation provides money to purchase vaccine, and the Hospital provides staffing and supplies, and between the two, the community – as a whole – benefits.
The Hospital and Foundation hope large families realize the benefits provided through the vaccine. Having one child home with the flu can put a great financial and/or emotional strain on parents who then have to stay home from work, or make arrangements for childcare. And, often times, the flu spreads throughout a family causing multiple days off from work.
There are other groups who benefit by receiving the vaccine. Persons taking care of young children or the elderly benefit by helping stop the spread of the flu virus. Also benefiting from the vaccinations are people working in high-density workplaces, such as large retail or grocery stores, students – including college students, and people who are expecting visitors, or are expecting to travel for the holiday seasons.
