Westport Weston health director urges flu vaccination

Mark A.R. Cooper, director of health for the Westpor tWeston Health District, is remindeding citizens of Westport and Weston that flu vaccine is available at the health district office. He encourages residents to get vaccinated early.

For individuals 65 and older, a “high dose” flu vaccination is available. 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 of age and older should be vaccinated. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year because the viruses that cause seasonal flu are always changing.

The following clinics are open to the public:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 16, 9:30-11:30 a.m., Weston Public Library, 56 Norfield Rd.
  • 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 to obtain their vaccination, visit or call 203-227-9571, ext. 231.

Homebound residents of Westport or Weston may call to schedule in-home vaccinations.

The cost is $35 for a seasonal flu vaccination, $55 for the high dose vaccine, and $45 for the nasal mist.

WWHD accepts Anthem, Aetna, Connecticare, and Medicare Part B insurance plans. Bring insurance card.
