Flu Shots for the Family on Saturday, November 16

(ITHACA, N.Y., November 12, 2013) —  Flu immunizations will be available at the Tompkins County Health Department for children (six months and above) and adults from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 16 at the Health Department on 55 Brown Road– near the airport. Appointments are preferred but walk – ins are welcome. There is plenty of free parking.

A flu shot is the best protection against the flu – it protects you and limits the spread of flu to others. These include infants under the age of 6 months who are too young to be immunized and those who are immunocompromised such as people receiving cancer treatment.

Call 274-6616 for an appointment and for information on cost. And for information on immunizations and additional clinics, go to www.tompkins-co.org/health
