Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.
The Fall Flu Shot Clinic, held at the Vinton Family Medical Clinic, is your way to preemptively beat influenza this flu season. Clinics are scheduled for the following dates/times:
Saturday, September 28th (8:30am-12:00pm)
Saturday, October 12th (8:30am-12:00pm)
Thursday, October 3rd (4:00pm-6:00pm)
Thursday, October 17th (4:00pm-6:00pm)
