The flu season is beginning! Everyone six months of age or older needs a flu vaccine. When most of us are vaccinated, we build community immunity that protects the elderly, children, and those with compromised immune systems from the terrible effects of influenza. During the current coronavirus pandemic, flu vaccination is all the more important for staying healthy and conserving needed health care services. For information on prevention, symptoms, and treatment of influenza, visit www.flu.gov
The Cooperative Public Health Service (CPHS) is offering influenza vaccines (with no insurance co-pay) to area residents at regularly scheduled wellness clinics throughout the region. For a schedule of all 2020 CPHS Flu Clinics, click here.

The CPHS Flu Clinic in Gill will be for children and adults of all ages and held at the Gill Elementary School on Saturday, October 24th from 10:00 AM until noon. The event will be held indoors, so face masks and social distancing will be required. The school is located at 48 Boyle Road.
