2/9/2012 - Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Flu Clinic

A vaccination clinic will run on Wednesday February 15, 2012 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at East Providence High School, 2000 Pawtucket Avenue in East Providence. “Tdap” (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccine will be available for anyone 11 years of age and older and flu vaccine will be available for anyone six months of age and older. This clinic is being run by the City of East Providence in collaboration with the Rhode Island Department of Health. It is a routine exercise that helps the emergency responders and public safety officials in our City prepare, should a real health emergency ever occur. But it is also a chance for you and the members of your family to get these two very important vaccinations.
