Flu Vaccination Clinics
Bristol Community College will be hosting flu vaccination clinics at all Bristol locations (Attleboro, Fall River New Bedford, and Taunton).
The clinics are free and open to all Bristol students and employees. Walk-ins welcome. An egg-free flu vaccine, as well as a vaccine specifically for participants ages 65 and older, will also be available. Please see below for details.
This year, it is again extremely important that you receive your flu shot. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance, flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 are both respiratory illnesses that, when combined, may put people at risk for serious illness or death. Getting the influenza vaccine during the COVID-19 pandemic will help reduce the overall impact of respiratory illness on the population, protect vulnerable populations from severe illness and decrease the overall burden on the healthcare system.
Flu Vaccinations Open to All Bristol Students & Employees
Bristol’s flu vaccinations clinics will be accepting walk-ins only.
Please check back for upcoming clinic dates.
- Do not come to campus if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
- A health insurance or Medicare card is required to get the flu vaccine.
