Flu Clinic at Addison Gilbert Hospital
A free community flu clinic will be held at Addison Gilbert Hospital, 298 Washington Street, Gloucester, on Tuesday, January 15 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. in the Cafe inside the Fisher entrance of the hospital. The clinic will be conducted by the Gloucester Health Department. There is no fee or pre-registration required. The clinic is available to those six months of age and older. Those attending are asked to wear short sleeves. All are welcome, you do not have to be a resident of Gloucester to attend; all are welcome.
It’s Not Too Late to Vaccinate!
Gloucester, MA- January 2013. The Gloucester Health Department encourages you to get
vaccinated against the flu, as flu season can go on until March or April and it is shaping up to be a bad year for the flu.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) encourages everyone 6 months and older to get
vaccinated against the flu. If you have not already been vaccinated the flu vaccine is now widely available and is still your best protection against the flu.
At the urging of the Mayor and the City Council, the Public Health Department is offering a free walk in flu clinic this afternoon Thursday January 10th from 3pm-6pm at its offices at 3 Pond Road.
In conjunction with Addison Gilbert Hospital we will also offer a flu clinic this Tuesday January 15th from 9am-11am at the hospital cafeteria. The clinic is free and open to anyone over 6 months of age who still needs a shot.
The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but good health
habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often can help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your mouth and nose.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
“We are taking the necessary steps to have adequate supply of vaccine available for Gloucester residents, especially our senior citizens and children.”, said Mayor Carolyn Kirk. “There is a lot of flu-like illness in Massachusetts right now, it’s important to remember that in most years, flu season doesn’t peak until February. This means it is an excellent time to get a flu vaccine. We urge everyone to get vaccinated to help stay healthy this season,” said Noreen Burke, Health Director.
For information on where to get a flu shot go to http://www.flu.gov and enter your zip code into the “Flu Vaccine Finder”
For more information, please contact the Gloucester Public Health Department at (978) 281-9771 or visit the city website http://www.gloucester-ma.gov
There’s Still Time!
Gina Fetting Baking At The Open Door
As of January 22 I will begin a volunteer program at the OPEN DOOR every Tuesday from 3-6. We will gather to bake desserts for our Community Meals program.
So,if you have a desire to create wonderful desserts for our guests let me know. If you don’t have the time to give but would love to contribute ingredients(butter,chocolate,coconut,etc) that would be awesome.
We feed at least 40 people a night and although the food is wonderful we need to make it just a little bit more special. To me there is nothing better then a great dessert.
We will also be making birthday cakes for any clients who come for dinner.
At this point we have two core people that will be there every Tuesday but if you want to join us let me know!
As many of you know Pastry has been my life and I want to share my passion with the Open Door,
I look forward to this new venture.
Be well, Gina
