More Flu Clinics Scheduled

Officials with the Putnam County Health Department say they have now received a limited supply of H1N1 flu shots. They'll have a clinic from five to eight o'clock Monday night, November 3, to give out those shots. You can call 528-2531 to schedule an appointment. Individuals deemed to be in high risk groups will have priority for the shots. That includes health care workers, pregnant women, children, and people with chronic health conditions. Meanwhile, the department is also having a clinic on Tuesday, starting at 10 am to give out seasonal flu vaccines. No appointment is necessary for those, and the cost of the shot is $25.
