Flu Season is here

Flu Season, Flu Shots, Flu Vaccine

It's flu season, that dreaded time of year. Yearly flu vaccination is the best tool to protect against influenza. Influenza is a serious disease that sickens millions of people each year.  The best way to prevent  the flu is to get a flu shot. 

Walk-ins welcome. Please register at the main entrance or stop in during one of our upcoming flu clinics and we will take care of you. Protect yourself and others by getting the shot.
