Have you gotten a flu shot already?
Please take a moment to let us know!
Everyone over the age of 6 months is advised to get a flu shot. It is particularly important this year amid the COVID pandemic. We have organized 5 consecutive weekend Flu Shot Clinics to facilitate Flu Shot distribution in a physically distanced way.
