From the Nurse: Flu Season Update

Reports this year indicate that the seasonal flu vaccine may be less effective due to a change in one of the viruses included in the vaccine.  However, this doesn’t mean the vaccine isn’t helping you stay healthy this flu season, minimizing symptoms, and helping prevent serious flu complications. Please read the attached document for important information. Anyone who would still like to receive a flu vaccine may call the Newton Health and Human Services Department at (617) 796-1420 and speak to the public health nurse to make an appointment.
