News from our Health and Wellness Department
Nashoba Regional High School will be hosting a flu clinic and health fair on Oct. 13, 2022 for all community members from 3-6PM. Pre-registration for the flu vaccine is required using the links posted on the Nashoba Associated Boards of health website at https://www.nashoba.org/calendar. If you are unable to attend this evening, other locations and times are on the website.
In our continued efforts to support students and families who may be experimenting with substances. Hidden in Plain Sight will be available at our health fair. You do not need to attend the flu clinic to participate.
Hidden in Plain Sight is a parent education exhibit created by Influence the Choice. This exhibit is a re-creation of a "typical teenager's bedroom" that teaches parents how to spot signs of drug use or abuse. The program offers adults insight into what youths may be hiding in their rooms by providing a mock-up of a typical teenager's bedroom.
After exploring the exhibit, the hope is that participants will have a developed awareness of the indicators of drug abuse, common methods of concealment and the paraphernalia used in the processing and use of illicit drugs.
Participants will also learn about law enforcement's efforts and experiences in combating alcohol and drug abuse and about resources for those seeking help and information.

Flu Clinic FAQ:
- Because there are different vaccine formulations for different age groups, registration links are divided by age group. Please select the link for the correct clinic location and your age group to register.
- Flu clinics are open to the public (ages 6 months and up). Not all clinics will be open to all ages; some will be designated specifically for adults/seniors, so please check the details of the clinic prior to registering. Residents of Nashoba towns can attend any clinic in the region serving their age group.
- When registering, please note: You may see a list of other clinic locations, but only one can be selected- the “Book Here” button for the correct clinic will be purple, while the others will be greyed out.
- People should bring their insurance cards to the clinic.
- No insurance? No problem. A person that does not have insurance may still receive a vaccination.
- There will be high dose flu vaccine available for those age 65 years and older
- We ask anyone feeling sick to stay home
