Quinsigamond Community College will offer free walk-in flu clinics twice this week beginning on Monday.

The events will take place from 8 a.m .to 4 p.m. Monday and Thursday at Lot 3 on the college’s main campus at 670 West Boylston St. Free COVID-19 testing and flu shots will be available without appointments.

Those attending the clinic are asked to bring their insurances cards. Flu shots are free with most insurances.

"Flu symptoms can be comparable with those of COVID-19, so getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever during 2020-2021, to protect yourself and the people around you from the flu,” QCC Community Public Health Specialist/Consultant Susan Johnson said in a statement. “We ask that people do not attend the flu clinic if they are feeling sick, have a fever, or are exhibiting any respiratory symptoms.”

Beyond Monday and Thursday, QCC will continue to offer free COVID-19 testing through Oct. 31 by appointment at Lot 3. Testing is being conducted by AIDS Project Worcester, Inc., as part of Massachusetts' “Stop the Spread” program.

Appointments for a free coronavirus test can be made by calling 508-847-0623.
