Flu Clinic Schedule


In our effort to provide access to the seasonal flu vaccine, the Nashoba Associated Boards of Health, together with your local Board of Health, will be providing flu clinics throughout the district during the month of October.  (Therefore, there will be NO regular blood pressure clinics held during October.) Our clinics are open to everyone ages 6 months and up.  Residents from any member town can attend any of our scheduled clinics! Please have residents bring their insurance cards/information. If a resident doesn’t have insurance or their card is unavailable, a $ 20 fee will be collected.

*As we confirm more clinics, we will update our website for a complete listing so please check:    OR feel free to call the nursing team: 978-772-3335 ext.340

Donate - Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice

Friends Non-Profit Group Formed

Shirley, MA - The Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice (Friends of NNS&H) is a non-profit volunteer group formed to provide assistance to Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice (NNS&H).  Over the years, health care reimbursements to home health and hospice providers have been deeply reduced.  NNS&H provides high quality home health services, such as nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapy, social work and homecare aides to their homebound patients.  Spiritual, volunteer and bereavement services are also provided to their hospice patients and families. 

The purpose of the non-profit Friends of NNS&H is to provide financial assistance to supplement and promote the activities of the NNSH&H, provide direct charitable assistance to indigent persons in need of nursing and hospice services, and to assist in the development of programs for the extension and improvement of their services and resources. 

The Friends group is actively seeking individual and community support by asking you to become a “Friend” of the Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice.  If you would like to help out, remember that no donation is too small or too large and it is tax deductible.  You may mail your donation directly to Friends of Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice, Two Shaker Rd., D-225, Shirley, MA 01464.  Checks can be made out to Friends of NNS&H.  If you need further information about the Friends, please call 978-425-6675.
