[ARCHIVED] COVID & Flu Advice for the Holidays

Stay Well Stay Safe Repeat Messenging using 5 different colors

The holiday season is right around the corner, and the Board of Health has advice for you, your family, and your friends. The safest way to gather with friends and family during the holidays is to be up to date with your Covid vaccinations (including getting boosted with the newest vaccine), get your flu shot, and utilize home testing to help prevent the spreading of Covid-19 to your friends and family.

While the vaccination clinics organized by our public health partners during October ended, you can still get an appointment at a local pharmacy or Fairview Hospital by going to either the Berkshire Health Systems Vaccination Information web page or Mass Gov Vaxfinder. Vaccinations are still currently available at no charge to those who don't have insurance. Free availability is scheduled to change soon for Covid vaccinations.:
