Washing hands, covering coughs, and getting flu shots are among the preventive measures that the town Health Department is advising this fall. �Frequent hand-washing with soap and warm water is perhaps the simplest and most effective way to help you and your family stay healthy this winter,� said Dr. Alan Balsam, the department�s director. Educational packets are available at schools, libraries, and town buildings, and information is posted online at www.mass.gov/handwashing. The Health Department is also holding three more flu vaccination clinics, starting with one from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Baker School, 205 Beverly Road. Subsequent clinics will be held 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Devotion School, 345 Harvard St.; and 4 to 6 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Health Department, 11 Pierce St. For more information, call 617-730-2336. – Andreae Downs
