FARMINGTON — Healthy Community Coalition staff will provide the influenza vaccine (seasonal flu shot) and information about the Affordable Care Act marketplace insurance in November.

The schedule is as follows:

• Tuesday, Nov. 10, 10:30 a.m.-noon at Farmington Public Library; and 1-2 p.m. at Industry Town Hall;

• Tuesday, Nov. 17, 9:30-11 a.m. at Weld Town Office; 2:30-4:30 p.m. at Wilton Public Library; and 5-6:30 p.m. at Jay-Niles Memorial Library.

Open enrollment for marketplace health insurance runs from Nov. 1 through Jan. 31. Individuals currently enrolled in a marketplace plan must re-enroll for 2016. In order to avoid a gap in coverage, currently enrolled individuals must sign up before Dec. 15.

Individuals who have questions may schedule an appointment for free assistance with a trained navigator at Healthy Community Coalition offices.

Flu shots are available to those 18 years old and older. For individuals that do not have insurance, there is a suggested donation of $25 or whatever one can afford. HCC is unable to accept insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. Healthy Community Coalition purchases all vaccine used for the public clinics and appreciates donations to help cover costs for those in need.
