Important Information on Flu Vaccine PDF Print E-mail

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is removing the requirement for flu vaccination for attendance in childcare/preschool, primary, secondary and postsecondary education.  Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask-wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19.   Given the intensive Commonwealth-wide efforts regarding COVID-19 vaccination, DPH wants to alleviate the burden to obtain flu vaccination and focus on continuing our COVID -19 vaccination efforts.  DPH continues to strongly recommend that everyone age six months and older receive their seasonal flu vaccine each year. ​

El Departamento de Salud Pública de Massachusetts está eliminando el requisito de la vacunación contra la influenza para asistir a la guardería / educación preescolar, primaria, secundaria y postsecundaria. Los datos preliminares muestran que esta ha sido una temporada de gripe leve hasta la fecha, presumiblemente porque las personas han recibido la vacuna contra la gripe estacional y se han adherido al uso de mascarillas y al distanciamiento social debido al COVID-19. Dados los esfuerzos intensivos de toda la Commonwealth con respecto a la vacunación contra COVID-19, el DPH quiere aliviar la carga de obtener la vacuna contra la influenza y concentrarse en continuar con nuestros esfuerzos de vacunación contra COVID-19. El DPH continúa recomendando enfáticamente que todas las personas mayores de seis meses reciban su vacuna contra la influenza estacional cada año.
