Flu Vaccines

Safe. Professional. Easy.

RVNAhealth offers flu vaccines for the whole family – from infants 6 months+ to seniors. Our nurses are highly skilled, experienced, and kind. Our appointments are easy whether you provide a drive-thru experience or an in office appointment.

We offer two types of flu vaccines. We also have a limited supply of the new Pfizer and Moderna COVID booster, available upon request and availability at the time of your flu shot. Learn about RVNAhealth safety protocols and payment/insurance.

Please note Walk-ins are strongly discouraged to avoid over-crowding and extended waits. Appointments take priority. RVNAhealth may ask walk-in patients to return at another date or time.

OPTION 3:

RVNAhealth Walk-In Community Clinics

Due to the wide availability of flu shots at doctor’s offices, pharmacies and urgent care centers in the community, RVNAhealth will not be offering off-site community flu clinics this year, aside from one exception (see below). This will allow our nursing efforts to be focused on bringing you quality home care, hospice and rehabilitation services at home.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the Bethel Community post-merger, we will be offering two large-scale community flu clinics:

Tuesday, October 11th   1:30-4:30pm
Bethel Track and Field Training Center (300 Whittlesey Dr, Bethel, CT 06801).
Book an Appointment HERE.

Wednesday, October 12th, 4:00-7:00pm
Bethel Berry School (200 Whittlesey Dr, Bethel, CT 06801).
Book an Appointment HERE.

Please note Walk-ins to these clinics are welcome, but pre-registered individuals will be prioritized. Walk-ins should be prepared to wait.

OPTION 4:

At Your Home (additional fees apply)

Individuals preferring to receive flu and pneumonia shots at home may make appointments with our private nursing team. We also have a limited supply of COVID boosters upon request and availability.

Please call 203-438-5555, option 4  for details and to make an at-home appointment.
