The city of Portland’s Public Health Division, working with Northern Light, is offering a flu and COVID bivalent booster vaccination clinic on Friday, Nov. 4, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at 39 Forest Avenue. Flu and COVID vaccinations will be available to the public, insured and uninsured, ages 12 and older.
Portland’s Public Health Director, Alfredo Vergara explains, “It is so important this year, with COVID-19 still in our community and predictions for a more serious flu season, that as many people as possible receive both the COVID Bivalent Booster and their annual flu vaccine. CDC assures us that it is safe to receive both vaccines at the same time.”
If you are age 12 or older, and it has been two months since your final dose of the primary series or last COVID booster, you are likely due for the new COVID bivalent booster; and CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older receive a flu shot annually.
Location: Portland Public Health Clinic, 39 Forest Avenue
Date: Friday, November 4
Time: 9:00 AM -12:00 PM
Please wear a loose, short-sleeved shirt, bring your COVID vaccination card for documentation, and if you carry insurance, you must bring your insurance card for billing.
