Flu

Flu season is upon us and it's not too late to get your flu shot. Some local pharmacies, as well as Dartmouth Health Connect, still have vaccine available. Please call first to confirm availability.

Dartmouth Health Connect patients, please call the practice at 603-738-1164 to make an appointment.

As of February 6th, 2018, the following pharmacies still have flu vaccine available.

  • Price Chopper, Lebanon – Available
  • Price Chopper, West Lebanon – Limited availability
  • CVS, West Lebanon – Availability limited to high dose vaccine for age 65+
  • Walgreens, West Lebanon – Availability limited to high dose vaccine for age 65+
  • Walmart, West Lebanon – Availability limited to high dose vaccine for age 65+

In addition to getting your flu shot, there are many other ways to stay healthy this flu season. Germs can spread easily, especially in an office setting. Here are some steps recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that you can take to avoid spreading and/or contracting germs on a daily basis:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
  • While sick or contagious, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
