State to kick off flu-prevention campaign tomorrow
State and town officials plan to roll up their sleeves tomorrow to get a flu shot, part of a campaign to promote prevention in a year when more flu vaccine is available than ever before.
Massachusetts Department of Public Health Commissioner John Auerbach, Secretary of Elder Affairs Michael Festa, and Brookline Health Director Alan Balsam will receive their flu shots at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Brookline Senior Center.
According to the state health department, there are 132 million doses of flu vaccine available in the United States for this winter's flu season, more than in past years. Massachusetts has bought 700,000 doses.
