Letter to the Editor: Senior Flu Shot Clinic A Success!

The views stated here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the editors of this newspaper. We welcome supporting or opposing views on any published item. Received October 5, 2022.

On Wednesday October 5, 2022, a Senior Flu Clinic was held at the former Haddam Elementary School in Higganum from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It was a very successful event coordinated by Haddam’s Social Services Coordinator & Municipal Agent, Jessica Condil.  Several dozen seniors were in attendance to get their flu shots from Nutmeg Pharmacy.  There were also a couple of organizations that set up tables to help Seniors with issues such as Medicare open enrollment, and probate.  A soup and sandwich lunch was served.  The latter was coordinated by Haddam’s Senior Center Manager, Colleen Totman.

If you missed the event and need a flu shot or the new COVID booster, you can go to either our Health District (CRAHD) facility in Old Saybrook, or contact them at 860-661-3300, or visit Nutmeg Phamacy’s website to make an appointment. It’s easy, no crowds or long lines! I got my Covid shot in Moodus last week!

As you can see in the photo above, First Selectman Bob McGarry was there and had a lunch date with his wife after they got their flu shots.  

Also you can see Greg McKenna of Nutmeg Pharmacy (above) talking with former First Selectwoman Marge DeBold, who is a very active part of the Committee on Aging and Club 60.  It is nice to see former Selectmen still active in town issues; e.g., I’ve seen Mark Lundgren at events; he was a First Selectman in the 1980s.

R. Thurston Clark. Chair, Haddam Committee on Aging
