CHANS Offers Free Flu Shots

Each fall, CHANS Home Health & Hospice holds more than 50 public flu shot clinics throughout the Midcoast region. Last year, CHANS provided almost 5,000 free vaccinations to community members. Available free of charge to anyone in the community over six months of age, the vaccinations help to prevent the spread of seasonal influenza.

Many people die from complications of infection with seasonal flu, and even more require hospitalization. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, flu vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of severe complications from illness, and for persons who are in close contact with those at higher risk. High-risk groups include adults over 65, children younger than five, and pregnant women.

Mid Coast–Parkview Health encourages as many people as possible to get vaccinated.

The fall 2018 clinic schedule is available at www.midcoasthealth.com/flu.

In addition, CHANS holds weekly flu vaccination clinics on Fridays through November 30, 9 a.m. to noon at Mid Coast Senior Health, 58 Baribeau Drive in Brunswick. Flu vaccinations are offered free of charge, but donations and insurance information are accepted.
