The pneumonia vaccine and the intra-dermal flu vaccine will not be offered at these clinics.

People in the following high-risk groups are at highest risk for flu complications:

  • People with serious long-term health problems (lung disease, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease and blood disorders.)
  • People with immune system weakness (cancer treatment, long-term steroid therapy, HIV/AIDS and other immune diseases.)
  • People 50 years of age and older.

Please check the CDC or NYS Department of Health websites for other high-risk categories and more flu information. For more information, please call Bassett Medical Center’s flu information line at 607-547-7973 or call 1-800-BASSETT. You can help fight the flu by washing your hands frequently, covering your mouth and nose when you cough, and staying home from work or school if you have symptoms of a cold or the flu.
