Learn About Vaccines and Attend Our FREE Flu Shot Clinic

It's that time of year again to protect yourself against the flu! 

Last year, the U.S. saw the longest flu season in a decade. Twenty-one miserable weeks resulted in 647,000 hospitalizations and more than 61,000 deaths.

Take the opportunity to get vaccinated this month at our annual free flu shot clinic. It takes up to two weeks to build immunity after you get a flu shot, so don't wait for others to get sick to protect yourself and your family from this contagious and severe illness. Get your flu shot here!*

This year, we’re also offering a vaccination class to break down myths about vaccine safety and the effectiveness of the flu shot. 

*While supplies last. 

The class and clinic are FREE and OPEN to everyone!   

Dates and Times:

Vaccination Class: Wednesday, September 18 | 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Flu Shot Clinic: Thursday, September 26 | 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
