Nurse’s Notes


Hello all,
I hope all is well with your families and loved ones. Please be careful and cautious as cold, ’flu and COVID season continues. The COVID bivalent vaccine is available by appointment at Anawan Pharmacy, both Moderna and Pfizer. Please get vaccinated! If you need help booking the on-line appointment, please call us at 508-252-5947 ext. 3127 and we will help you out. The ‘flu vaccine is also available at Anawan Pharmacy. Both the routine ‘flu and the Senior HD quadrivalent ‘flu vaccines are available. Please be aware that if you would like to receive both vaccines at one time, you may safely do so. However, if you want to wait between each vaccine, you must allow 30 days.

Our First Annual Health and Wellness Fair was a success. We had over 200 people attend. Though we had a wonderful opportunity to introduce the Public Health Nurses’ office and its purpose to our town residents, there is no doubt that the food from Vino’s, Rehoboth House of Pizza and The Ice cream Barn, the hay and fire engine ride and the outdoor games where a huge draw. We hope to see more of you at the 2nd Annual Health and wellness fair next October!
