Influenza Vaccination and Covid Booster Clinics

Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment to Host Three Public Vaccine Clinics in September and October

Clinics will provide an opportunity to get the recently approved COVID-19 bivalent booster, and/or the influenza vaccine for the 2022/2023 flu season

September 8, 2022 (Barnstable, MA) – Barnstable County Department of Health and Environment’s Public Health Nursing Division will be offering three public vaccine clinics for administration of both the COVID-19 bivalent booster (or “updated booster”) and/or the 2022/2023 influenza vaccine. The clinics will be held at the Harborview Conference Room at 3195 Main Street in Barnstable Village at the following dates and times:

September 21, 2022, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

September 30, 2022, 9:00 AM to 12: 00 PM

October 5, 2022, 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Accommodations will be provided for those with impaired mobility.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older and can pre-register for a Pfizer or Moderna bivalent booster and/or influenza vaccine at the following link:

https://home.color.com/vaccine/register/barnstable?calendar=53d670fc-9ea3-4720-8b22-15be78562f8d. Anyone who requires telephone assistance to register for these clinics may call the COVID-19 Helpline at (774) 330-3001.

We are unable to accept walk-ins and will not administer vaccine to anyone who does not have an appointment. Participants should arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to their scheduled time to prevent lines and long wait times.

Homebound individuals who would like to receive an updated COVID-19 booster can call the Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) at (508) 957-7737 to schedule a visit.

Like the flu vaccine, the updated COVID-19 boosters are bivalent, meaning they protect against two different viruses or two strains of the same virus. In this case, the boosters target the original COVID-19 strain and the newer omicron variant. Reported side effects are the same as the original vaccine. It is safe and effective to receive the updated booster and the flu vaccine simultaneously, or patients may choose to receive them on separate dates.

It is important to note that the original monovalent Pfizer and Moderna mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized for use as boosters in people ages 12 years and older. The FDA made this decision because the updated booster is designed to offer more protection from the circulating omicron variant.
