In the age of COVID-19, Bronx residents are reportedly getting more flu shots.

At the 11 Montefiore Community Flu Clinics held throughout the Bronx in 2020, 582 residents have gotten free flu shots to date, all at socially distanced and convenient locations.

This is double the amount of vaccines administered during the same number of clinics last year. These clinics are made possible by a partnership between Montefiore Health System and Walgreens.
