Both clinics: 10:00 am – 12:30 pm 

The available vaccines are:  Quadrivalent for ages 5 and over, and High Dose for ages 65 and older.

“As a community bank, this is one way we can provide a much needed service to residents and do what we can to keep everyone healthy this winter season”, said Bernadeta Eichner, Sr. Relationship Manager, Granby branch and Joseph Beale, Sr. Relationship Manager, Simsbury branch.  

“We are pleased to be able to partner with Simsbury Bank again this year to offer this important preventative health benefit. The flu is a serious and highly contagious illness that can lead to lengthy recuperation and complications such as pneumonia especially in the young, elderly or immunocompromised populations. Immunization is the key in preventing a flu epidemic, with secondary prevention by careful hand washing, cleaning common surfaces, and avoiding those who are ill. If you do become ill, please practice respiratory care and avoid air travel and public places by staying isolated which is essential to keeping the flu from spreading. But the very first step is to prevent illness by immunization, and the VNA holds flu shot clinics for just this purpose.”, said Nancy Scheetz, RN, Executive Director of the Farmington Valley Visiting Nurse Association.

The following types of insurance are accepted:  Medicare (Part B as Primary Carrier); ConnectiCare (Regular & Medicare); CIGNA; Aetna (Regular & Medicare); Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield (but no Anthem Medicare); Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare; Wellcare and United Healthcare (CT State Retiree Plan only).
