Flu shot clinic for seniors in Weston set by health district

According to Mark A.R. Cooper, director of health, the Westport Weston Health District (WWHD) will hold a flu vaccination clinic for Weston senior citizens on Wednesday, Oct. 3, from 1 to 2 p.m. at Norfield Congregational Church in Weston.

This clinic is only open to Weston seniors by appointment. Call the Weston Senior Center at 203-222-2608 to register.

For Westonites 65 and older, a “high dose” flu shot will be available at this clinic.

Mr. Cooper said adults 65 years and older account for 60% of flu related hospitalizations and 90% of flu related deaths. Recent studies show that people 65 and older do not produce as high of an antibody response following vaccination as do younger people, potentially leaving them at higher risk of getting the flu. The high dose vaccine has been shown to improve antibody production, thus providing a stronger immune response following vaccination.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older should be vaccinated.

Mr. Cooper said the best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year because the viruses that cause seasonal flu are always changing.

Westonites younger than 65 are welcome at any of the Westport Weston Health District’s other walk-in flu vaccination clinics:

Wednesday, Oct. 10: 5:30-7:30 p.m., Westport Senior Center, 23 Imperial Ave., Westport.

Tuesday, Oct. 16: 9:30-11:30 a.m., Weston Public Library, 56 Norfield Rd., Weston

Thursday, Oct. 18: 4-7 p.m., WWHD, 180 Bayberry Lane, Westport.

Friday, Nov. 9: 1-3 p.m., Westport Public Library, 20 Jesup Rd., Westport.

Wednesday, Nov. 14: 1-3 p.m., WWHD, 180 Bayberry Lane, Westport.

For those wishing to schedule an appointment for a vaccination, visit wwhd.org or call 203-227-9571, ext. 231. Homebound residents of Westport or Weston may call to schedule an in-home vaccination.

The cost of vaccination is $35 ($55 for the high dose vaccine). Most insurance plans are accepted for payment; be sure to bring the insurance card.
