Flu Information

What You Need to Know about Flu Season

In Maine, influenza season typically begins in October and peaks mid-winter. In order to prevent serious illness that can lead to hospitalization and possible death in vulnerable populations, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone six months of age and older get a yearly flu vaccine.

Community Flu Clinics

Each year, CHANS Home Health Care partners with local organizations to offer a vigorous schedule of community vaccination clinics throughout the Midcoast region. As part of our commitment to care for the health of our community, CHANS provides the clinics and individual vaccinations free of charge, yet donations are welcome.

CHANS walk-in flu shot schedule will be posted during the next flu season.
