Quick, Organized & Painless

I was deathly, with a big "D," afraid of needles as a kid. The sight of Dr. Leo Clancy's big black sedan pulling up in front of our house on Prospect Street would send us kids scurrying for our rooms. Yes, doctors made house calls back in the dark ages. That medical smell from the cotton swabs would send my stomach churning. At a polio clinic at town hall in the late 50's I blew my lunch on the top step leading up to the stage. Not long afterwards a drinkable vaccine came out for polio. Even while standing in line while in the army I passed out from the whiff of that medical smell. Anne Adams, below, who greeted town residents Saturday morning from 9 am to noon at the Miller School Cafetorium assured me that my condition was shared by others.

The lines for the flu clinic reminded me of my hurry up and wait days in the army. But the clinic was a well oiled machine as my Medicare card was photocopied quickly and I was sent to the next station.

Robert Shore, below, waited for a seat to fill out his form.

Nancy Saulnier, below, made sure everyone dotted their I's and crossed their T's.

I was then ushered over to the young girl, below, but was nervous and forgot to ask her name. Lisa Deering stands on the right in the photo.

Anne Adams did tell me that another clinic (date to be determined) some time in November will be held for town employees and any one who missed this clinic can call the Board of Health to make an appointment at 508-429-0605. Adams stated that over 500 people came out for the clinic, a new record and she extended the Board's thanks to the volunteers.
