WINDSOR, Vt. – Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center will once again offer flu vaccinations to help residents of the Upper Valley avoid the physical discomfort of flu season. But to help residents avoid waiting in line, MAHHC now offers express appointments during regular business hours on designated flu shot days.
“We want to encourage everyone to receive their shot this flu season by removing any potential inconvenience,” says Joseph Perras, president of MAHHC.
“Flu season typically runs from October to May, with ‘peak season’ between December and February so we urge everyone to take this important step now to help avoid a potential encounter with the flu virus,” noted Margaret Worth, CIC Infections preventionist.
