Information and Wellness Center – South Burlington Blue Mall

South Burlington, VT – Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont’s (BCBSVT) First Wednesday Wellness for the month of October will take place on October 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. BCBSVT will host the free event at their Information and Wellness Center located in the Blue Mall at 150 Dorset Street in South Burlington.

BCBSVT will provide free flu vaccinations in place of the normally provided biometric screenings offered at their First Wednesday Wellness events. The flu shots are free for all participants 18 and older, regardless of their insurance status. Those without health insurance are welcome.

“I encourage you to make time in your busy schedule to get a flu vaccination this autumn. Every year, thousands of adults and children become seriously ill with influenza. Vaccination helps protect you and also helps reduce the spread of the flu virus to your coworkers, family and community,” says Dr. Robert Wheeler, M.D., vice president and chief medical officer of BCBSVT.

To register or for more information, please call Alan at (802) 764-4828.
