Cambridge Flu Clinics

The Cambridge Public Health Department's annual flu clinics ended on Nov. 2, 2017.

The Cambridge Public Health Department is currently offering free flu shots to adults and children (age 6 months and older) by appointment on:
  • Wednesdays: 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. 
  • Thursdays: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
To make an appointment, please call 617-665-3826. The health department is located at 119 Windsor Street, lower level.

FluMist and high-dose flu vaccine will not be available. High-dose vaccine is available at most Cambridge pharmacies.

While there is no charge to the public for flu shots, the health department asks that people with health insurance bring their cards with them to the clinics.  

Many doctors’ offices and local pharmacies are also offering flu vaccine this fall. Flu shots are covered by most Massachusetts health insurance plans.
