October Health Newsletter featuring info on Vaccines

Please be sure to check the October Newsletter from Newton’s Health and Human Services. You will find up to date information about the flu vaccine, which is now mandatory for all students, no matter if in-person, hybrid, or distant learners.  

Newton’s Health and Human Services Department offers community flu vaccine clinics, however they fill up very quickly. Note that there are many other places in/around Newton where vaccinations are available. More specifically, urgent care centers, pharmacies and healthcare providers. Check the HHS flu page at newtonma.gov/flu for a complete list.
