The Amherst Health Department offers a variety of clinics throughout the year.
___________________________________________________________________________________ Immunization Clinics
If your child needs immunizations for school entry, please coordinate with your child's school nurse before arrival.
We provide immunizations to children, adolescents and adults with no health insurance free of charge. Immunizations are only for urgent use allowing students to attend school and give time to families to obtain health insurance and choose a health care provider.
Immunization Clinics are open to children and adults from Amherst and are for people who do not have health insurance.
Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If you have an immunization record, please bring it to your appointment.
A nurse will administer the immunizations and are available for questions.
Clinics are held every second Wednesday of the month 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., and by appointment. Please coordinate with you child's school nurse before arrival.
_____________________________________________________________________________________ Flu Clinics
Seasonal flu clinics are scheduled during the fall for Amherst residents with no health insurance. We are no longer able to provide flu shots to people who have health insurance, including MassHealth.
