Stamford To Host Flu Shot Drive-Through Clinic

STAMFORD, CT — The city will host a drive-through clinic this weekend to provide flu shots to residents while they remain in their vehicle.

The drive-through clinic will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Stamford High School parking lot, located behind the building and adjacent to Hillandale Avenue. The entrance to the drive-through clinic will be on Fenway Street.

In an announcement, Mayor David Martin stressed the importance of residents getting a flu shot this year. (To sign up for Stamford breaking news alerts and more, click here.)

“It is especially important residents get a flu shot this year to avoid getting the flu and going to the hospital,” Martin said in a statement. “Flu shots are available at our health clinic, your personal doctor’s office or various pharmacies throughout the city. It only takes a minute and ensures you’ll be protected from the flu this season.”

According to Stamford Hospital’s chair of infectious diseases, Michael Parry, getting a flu shot is especially important this year as the flu and the coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19, have similar symptoms.

Typical flu symptoms include a fever, body aches, extreme tiredness and a dry cough, which generally differs from the common cold, according to city officials.

“Because influenza and COVID-19 present in very similar ways,” Parry said in a statement, “it is more important than ever to get a flu shot this year to minimize the risk of getting both infections.”

Police: Stamford dentist slashed neck of woman in love triangle


STAMFORD — A local dentist has been indicted for attempted murder after New York police say she attacked her former fiancé’s new girlfriend with a razor blade.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. said Alika Crew, 42, of New Rochelle, N.Y., has been indicted by a Grand Jury for the July 28 attempted murder of another woman.

Crew was arraigned Wednesday in Westchester County Court before Judge David Zuckerman on charges of second-degree attempted murder, three counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, first-degree unlawful imprisonment and criminal possession of a weapon.


Crew pleaded not guilty to the charges, according to lohud.com.

New Rochelle Police Capt. Cosmo Costa said Crew was employed as a dentist in Stamford. Crew is listed as an orthodontist on the Stein Dental Group’s website. A person who answered the phone at the Springdale office declined to comment on Thursday.



According to her bio on the dental group’s website, Crew grew up in Maryland before attending Brown University, the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and The Case Western School of Dental Medicine, where she received her orthodontic certificate and master’s degree in the science of dentistry.


According to the website, Crew has been employed with the dental group “for many years.”

Prosecutors allege that Crew attacked her former fiancé’s new girlfriend, lunging at her from behind the driver’s seat in the victim’s car.


The victim got out of the car and tried to run away, but Crew caught up to her and sliced the woman’s neck with a razor blade, causing significant and possibly permanent damage, prosecutors said. The victim also sustained a serious cut to her hand when she tried to push Crew away, prosecutors said.

The attack occurred a few blocks from where Crew and her ex-fiancé were still living together as the victim was leaving the house after spending the night, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Crew initially left the scene as neighbor’s came the victim’s aid. Crew then returned and pretended to be a “concerned neighbor,” prosecutor said.

The victim identified Crew as the attacker and she was arrested at the scene, prosecutors said.


Crew, who has been free on $200,000 bond, is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 2.
