In response to the dramatic rise in cases of the flu in Boston, Mayor Menino has declared a public health emergency.  Compared with last year, there has been a 10-fold increase in the number of flu cases (700 vs 70) with the flu season extending through March.

The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) has authorized many clinics (21) throughout the city to maintain flu clinic hours Jan 11-13, 2013.  This includes the Uphams Corner Health Center which will offer clinics both Friday and Saturday.

Mayor Menino and the Health Commission are  encouraging everyone to get a "flu shot" ASAP (now!).

On November 29, 2012, the clinic held an all afternoon World AIDS Day event with prayer, stories, food and a keynote speaker who lives with AIDS and who is integral to the UCHC support network. 

They then released balloons in honor of AIDS patients who had passed.
