Flu season is upon us, and it’s early this year.

Prevent the flu, wash your hands

The first line of defense is an easy one — hand washing. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says keeping your hands clean is the one of the best ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness. Wet your hands, turn off the water and apply soap. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.

Manet on the Move

manet quincy medical center

On Dec. 13, Manet's Quincy Medical Center (QMC) Primary Care team, HIV Case Managers and Prevention Specialists closed up shop at QMC, then spent the rest of the weekend moving. Our providers started seeing patients bright and early Monday morning, Dec. 15, in their new home in North Quincy. And our HIV Team opened their doors right on time Monday at our Snug Harbor/Germantown site.

"We're excited to welcome our patients to this beautiful North Quincy facility," says Lily Yung, MD, Lead Physician of the Manet QMC team. "We have settled in comfortably on the first floor. Come see us!"

Thanks to our fabulous Director of Facilities, Marsha Meade, and all our teams for making our commitment to uninterrupted care possible.

You can view more photos of our move - both moves - on Manet's Facebook page.
To make an appointment at our North Quincy facility, call 857-403-0820.

Nasal Narcan Overdose Reversal Program

Manet Community Health Center is addressing the growing problem of opioid overdoses in South Shore communities with a free program to distribute a drug that has the potential to reverse overdoses and save lives. Manet’s effort is part of a pilot initiative by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Opioid Prevention and Reversal Project.

Presently, Manet has the largest team from Quincy to Brockton that distributes nasal naloxone (Narcan)—known as the anti-overdose drug—and trains area residents in its use on a daily basis by walk-in or appointment (call 857-939-4108). Anyone can receive the free training, whether or not they are a Manet patient. Evening hours are available.
