They do this every year to provide flu shots.

One of the nurses who gave people their vaccinations said it is not only important to get a flu shot for yourself, but for others.

“It’s important to protect yourself, so you won’t become ill and also to protect others you know. Especially those who have a compromised immune system like the elderly and infants. ” Nurse Panze Mcneill said.

Those who worked the clinic said they had a steady flow of people who came out to get a flu shot.

Last year they had close to 80 people.
