Immunizations & Vaccines

Protect your family -
Protect our island community


Vaccines are among the most important medical tools at our disposal to protect ourselves, our children and our community. They are safe, effective, and readily available at Nantucket Cottage Hospital. Immunizing yourself and your loved ones against vaccine-preventable diseases can keep you well, save your family time and money, but most importantly, it could save your child’s life and the lives of others who may be unable to receive vaccinations. At Nantucket Cottage Hospital, our family physicians and consulting pediatricians can explain the benefits of vaccinations, and get your child on the appropriate immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control. Please contact your primary care physician for more information and to get your family members up date with their immunizations.

NCH Flu Vaccinations for the 2021-22 Season

Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever to protect yourself and the people around you from flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Save time by getting your flu shot safely and conveniently at Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Annual Flu Shot Clinic held at the Anderson Building at 57 Prospect Street, Monday through Saturday, from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, beginning on Tuesday September 28th.

Appointments are required. Sign up begins on Monday, September 27th and can be done online through Mass General Brigham Patient Gateway, or by calling (508) 825-1000.

Every year, seasonal flu vaccines help keep our community safe by providing protection against the most common strains of influenza. Most insurances cover the complete cost of the flu shot every year, requiring no co-pay for patients.
