To help protect staff and patients from the spread of the flu, the MGH is offering a number of flu clinics.
Employee Flu Clinics
On the MGH main campus, employees who were unable to attend last week's clinics may go to MGH Occupational Health Services at 165 Charles River Plaza, Suite 404 for a flu shot or call 617-726-2217 to schedule an appointment. For employees at satellite clinics, access http://intranet.massgeneral.org to view a schedule of off-site clinics. Staff should remember to bring their ID badge and wear clothing that rolls easily up to the top of the arm.
Patient Flu Clinics
The MGH will host a Central Flu Clinic for patients ages 18 and older in the Wang Ambulatory Care Center Main Lobby Monday, Oct. 4 through Friday, Nov. 19, from 8 am through 6 pm (from 9 am to 3 pm on Monday, Oct. 11 and 8 am to 5 pm on Thursday, Oct. 14) and Saturday, Oct. 16 and Oct. 23 from 9 am through 3 pm. Patients who plan to receive the flu shot are asked to call the toll-free MGH Flu Shot Hotline at 1-877-733-3737 to confirm that there are adequate vaccine supplies in stock and that the clinic is open. Patients of MGH practices outside of Boston can come to the MGH Clinic in Boston or call their primary care physician for flu shot information.
