2021 Community Flu Vaccines Available

Each fall, partner organizations across the Upper Valley come together to provide seasonal flu vaccine to our community members. This year is no exception.

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our communities, protecting people from seasonal flu illness is more important than ever. We want to keep people who are medically vulnerable out of health care settings as much as possible. It can also be hard to tell the difference between flu symptoms and COVID-19 symptoms, so the less flu in our community the better.

There are numerous options for vaccination. Please use the information below to find the right vaccine option for you and your family.

This list DOES NOT include school-based seasonal flu vaccine clinics offered in many of our New Hampshire schools. This is because these clinics are reserved only for students of those schools. If your child has the opportunity to get a vaccine in one of these school-based clinics, we encourage you to sign them up.
