The season to fight the flu


MGH Occupational Health Services is offering a number of flu vaccine clinics in the coming weeks to help MGH staff stay healthy this winter. The first clinics will be held Sept. 16 through Sept. 20, 7 am to 5 pm in the Bulfinch Tent.

“The most important step you can take to protect yourself, your colleagues and our patients from the flu is to get vaccinated,” says Andrew Gottlieb, NP, FNP-BC, director of MGH Occupational Health Services. “In addition, our flu immunization rate is an important measure of the quality of care we provide. The influenza virus changes every season so it is very important to get vaccinated each and every year.”
