Braintree will offer a new flu vaccination that protects against more strains of the flu virus, says Marybeth McGrath, director for the Department of Municipal Licenses and Inspections. The quadrivalent flu vaccine offers coverage for four strains of the flu vs. the previous trivalent, which covers three.
