Seasonal Flu Shot Clinics

Vaccinations and Immunizations

Receiving a flu vaccine is an essential part of protecting your health and your family’s health this season. Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death.

Getting a flu vaccine this fall will be more important than ever, not only to reduce your risk from flu but also to help conserve potentially scarce healthcare resources. During the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing the overall burden of respiratory illnesses is important to protect vulnerable populations at risk for severe illness, the healthcare system, and other critical infrastructure.

Mid Coast–Parkview Health Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinics

During October and November, Mid Coast–Parkview Health will host a series of drive-thru flu shot clinics in Bath, Brunswick, and Topsham. Clinics will be offered every weekend in October at Mid Coast Hospital’s Parkview Campus, 329 Maine Street in Brunswick and at varying Mid Coast Medical Group practice locations. The fall 2020 drive-thru clinic schedule is available at www.midcoasthealth.com/flu.

Each year, many people die from complications of infection with seasonal flu, and even more require hospitalization which could have been prevented. Available to anyone in the community over six months of age, flu vaccinations help to prevent the spread of seasonal influenza and have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death.

Reducing the overall burden of respiratory illnesses is important to protect vulnerable populations at risk for severe illness, the healthcare system, and other critical infrastructure. The single best way to stop the spread of flu is to get vaccinated.

Mid Coast–Parkview Health’s 2020 flu shot clinics are jointly offered by CHANS Home Health & Hospice and Mid Coast Medical Group. Vaccinations are offered free of charge, but donations and insurance information are accepted.
