In partnership with Occupational Health Services of Portsmouth Regional Hospital, C&J Bus Lines will hold a flu shot clinic for all C&J employees at our Portsmouth terminal on January 24.
The clinic will run in two shifts, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Marie Hall, a Registered Nurse at Portsmouth Regional Hospital, will be on hand to administer vaccinations and to answer any questions. She will also have a table accessible to the public that will have giveaways such as tissues and hand sanitizers as well as literature about the flu.
C&J transports passengers 24 hours a day, every day of the year. From our three terminal locations, Logan Airport, Boston’s South Station and from the NYC Port Authority, C&J carries more than 600,000 travelers every year.
“We have a heightened sense of responsibility to help promote prevention awareness to help reduce the spread of what has proved to be a very serious flu epidemic”, said C&J VP of Operations Jamie Lesniak.
Each of C&J’s coaches receives a thorough cleaning every day that includes a heavy focus on sanitization. The terminals and coach lavatories are all equipped with tissues and hand sanitizer.
C&J is also providing educational information in public areas as well as on all social media outlets to encourage people to practice best practices to avoid the spread of contagion during this flu season and throughout the year.
Due to the limited supply of vaccine, this clinic is primarily for C&J employees, but there will be a small quantity available to the public for a $20 cash payment. Anyone traveling through our Portsmouth terminal who is interested in receiving a flu shot should allow for extra time before their scheduled travel departure.
