Convenience is what brought Swampscott resident Maria Frayler to the Senior Center for a flu shot. That and wanting to avoid the flu. The convenience of 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. hours on Tuesday and the location behind the high school drew lots of people — 40 to 50 — to the flu clinic, said clerks Helen Collins and Donna Cassetta. Helen and Donna, who have volunteered the last 8 years or so as clerks at Swampscott flu clinics, checked in people as they arrived. And Swampscott Public Health Nurse Roseanne Bruno and RN Amy Vaughan administered the vaccines. This was the second large clinic the town has hosted this year.

The town Health Department was able to immunize about 300 residents through help given by volunteers and organizations.
