If reports on Facebook are to be considered there have already been students diagnosed with the flu in our local area. Getting a flu shot is a way to keep your child, your family and those who have compromised immune systems healthy.
Bayne Jones Army Community Hospital is offering Drive Through Flu Clinic this coming Tuesday from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. It is open to all Tricare Prime members – active duty, retirees and family members. They that you bring ID cards for member 10 and above. Everyone will be screened – they will have a physician on site. Children ages 6 months to 8 years old who have never received a flu shot will be given a half dose for the first shot and the second half in 30 days. Enter from entrance B off of 3rd Street and you don't even have to get out of your car.
If you are unable to attend this event, they are also offering an indoor trick or treat and flu vaccine on October 29 with the same times and same requirements.
