Flu Immunization Clinic

Flu immunization clinics usually run from late October into early December. Flu vaccinations are administered yearly to protect against influenza (the flu). The vaccination is given each year because the virus that causes influenza continues to change. Yearly vaccination offers protection against the viral strains that may be circulating that year. Watch for clinic dates and times to be advertised.  Please click here for resources regarding the flu vaccine.
