Darien Health Department again has supplies of influenza vaccine available and has restarted its flu shots program, with one new date replacing a date that had been cancelled for lack of the vaccine.
An Oct. 15 date for flu shots in Town Hall was cancelled because the department didn’t have supplies.
A new date, Thursday, Oct. 24 has now been added for anyone to come get flu shots in Room 119 in Town Hall, 2 Renshaw Road, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Otherwise, the same schedule as before still applies:
—On Oct. 29 you can still get flu shots in the Mather Senior Center in Town Hall between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m..
—The Election Day (Nov. 5) “Vote & Vax” flu shots are still scheduled, and will take place between 3 and 7 p.m. in Town Hall.
You don’t need to come on a scheduled clinic day: You can also “make an appointment with our Public Health Nurse by utilizing the Health Department on-line scheduler,” the department said in an announcement.
The announcement about the new dates repeated some information for anyone coming in to get shots:
“Vaccine is preservative free & available to those over 3 years old.
“The cost of flu vaccine is $30, payable by check, cash or ConnectiCare insurance.
“We accept traditional Medicare Part B ONLY and do not participate with any of the Medicare Advantage Plans.”
- In addition to the scheduled Darien Health Department clinics mentioned here, you can schedule a flu shot at Walgreens, 148 Heights Road, here; or call CVS in Darien at 203-655-6335 to get your flu shot there. Costco in Norwalk also provides flu shots, and you don’t have to be a Costco member to get them. Your insurance may or may not be accepted.
