Vaccination available at hospital's drive-through

Caritas Norwood is believed to be the first hospital in Massachusetts to implement a drive-through flu-shot clinic, joining medical centers and health departments stretching from Seattle to rural Virginia. Last year was the first flu season that drive-through vaccinations were offered at the hospital.
