Throughout October, Visiting Nurses Association of Care New England will host flu vaccine clinics in Rhode Island. As flu season approaches, the VNA will administer flu shots at six locations across the state. 

VNA nurse Paula Foster encourages all who want to be vaccinated to come; regardless of their insurance status.

“The state has allotted us a certain amount of vaccine for the uninsured," said Foster. "So nobody will be turned away, and we want to make sure that everybody that wants a flu shot is getting a flu shot.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend everyone, especially children, and the elderly, be vaccinated each year to prevent against the flu. Flu clinic locations in Rhode Island include Coventry, Cranston, Lincoln, North Kingston, and Warwick.
