People will endure a little inconvenience if they have to, depending on the reward at the end. But since getting a shot is not really high on most people list of favorite things, the Health Department brought the flu vaccine to town employees Tuesday. The department vaccinated dozens of town employees, including most department heads in what was touted as the “Flu Shots for Big Shots” vaccination campaign.
“The biggest thing is we want to encourage people to get their flu shots,” said Health Director Rhonda Capuano. “It just takes a few minutes, and if people can do it while on a short break from work, that will only encourage more people to get it.”
