2020 Public Flu Clinic Schedule
The flu vaccine is especially important this year. It significantly reduces the likelihood that you will get sick with the flu. It also minimizes the impact of respiratory illness in our community, which lessens the potential burden on the local healthcare system as we continue to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Getting vaccinated is an important step that you can take to protect yourself and others, including those at high risk.
