A walk-in Flu Shot Clinic will be available at the Montrose Community Center on Thursday, October 22 from 3 pm to 7 pm. Eric Grocott from Salem Community Drug will be administering the flu shots.

Children 4 and up can receive the flu shot here. 3:00 - 3:30 would be the best time for high-risk individuals to stop in. No appointment necessary.

More details will be coming so keep an eye out for updates, but mark this down on your calendar and plan to get vaccinated for the flu. It's more important this year than ever.
