Additional walk-in opportunities will take place Sat., October 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., as well as Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., both at the clinic in Staples.
After the Center for Disease Control found the flu “nasal” vaccine to be ineffective, the nasal vaccine is no longer available to patients. Flu shots are recommended for anyone ages six months and older.
