MIT Medical offers flu shots


As the flu season approaches, MIT Medical reminds you to consider getting immunized. You may get a flu shot when you visit your clinician for a regular appointment or you may make an appointment for one of several vaccination clinics taking place in November.

Please note one of the clinics is being held in Cambridge on Veteran's Day, an Institute holiday. Making your appointment for this clinic would be a great way to avoid traffic and parking hassles.
