FluZone Quadrivalent is not a high-dose vaccine.
Those who visit the clinic are asked to wear short sleeves and bring proof of insurance. Masks must be worn in the clinic by state policy. Residents are reminded to stay home if they feel ill.
Vaccinations are by appointment only. Walk-ins are not allowed. Register here.
