In an effort to improve convenience, Mount Desert Island Hospital has scheduled a series of community flu shot clinics, including one on Election Day, Nov. 6 at the Bar Harbor town office. Getting vaccinated annually against the influenza virus dramatically reduces a person’s chances of contracting the illness.

Because the vaccine does not use a live virus, a person cannot contract the flu from the vaccine. “Getting the flu shot not only helps protect you against the illness, it also can benefit your friends, family and coworkers because your chance of getting sick is much lower which means you’re less likely to pass it on to others,” said MDI Hospital Community Health Educator Kathy Mulligan.

The cost of the vaccine at MDI Hospital’s flu shot clinics is $30. MaineCare, Medicare, cash or checks are accepted. Receipts are also provided for patients with private insurance who wish to submit their own claim.

Tuesday, Oct. 16 - the Malvern-Belmont Community Room from 1-3 pm (Bar Harbor)

Thursday, Oct.18 - Mount Desert Nursing Association from 1-4 pm (Northeast Harbor)
