Date: 09/23/2022

Presque Isle, Maine (September 23, 2022) — Northern Light AR Gould Hospital will be offering a series of flu shot clinics for adults in October, with both drive-up and walk-in options. A pediatric flu shot clinic for children age six months to 18 years old is also planned.


The schedule for the Adult Flu Shot Clinics will be:

Presque Isle:  Saturday, October 1, 9 am – 1 pm

Northern Maine Community College gymnasium – 33 Edgemont Drive


Mars Hill:  Thursday, October 6, 4 pm – 6 pm (Drive Up)

In the parking lot of Central Aroostook High School – 26 Pleasant Street


Caribou:  Saturday, October 15, 9 am – 11 am (Drive Up)

In the parking lot of Nortern Light Caribou Health Center – 118 Bennett Drive


Fort Fairfield:  Saturday, October 15, 1 pm – 3 pm (Drive Up)

In the parking lot of Northern Light Fort Fairfield Health Center – 23 High Street


Both regular and high dose flu shots will be available at these clinics. Individuals must be at least 18 years of age and wear a face covering. Wearing a short sleeved shirt is also recommended for easier access for receiving the shot.  Participants are also asked to bring their insurance card with them, as the hospital will be billing insurance companies for the vaccine.  This cost is covered by most insurances with no cost to the patient. 


The Pediatric Flu Shot Clinic will be:

Saturday, October 29, 9 – 11 am

Northern Light Pediatrics, North Street Healthcare, 23 North Street


Due to safety guidelines, all who enter the building will go through a COVID-19 screening, and everyone over the age of two must wear a mask. For families with only one or two children, we ask that only one adult bring them; for those with three or more children, two adults are welcome. Again, please bring your insurance card. The pediatric shot itself is free; however, there will be a small fee for administering the shot submitted to your insurance company. MaineCare and most insurances will cover this fee with no cost to the patient.


Anyone who is not feeling well or experiencing any COVID symptoms is asked to wait until they are feeling better to get their flu shot.
