The first seasonal influenza vaccination program is ONLY for residents 65 years of age and older and will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021 between the hours of 9:30 AM and 11:30 AM. Proof of age will be required to be provided and no one under 65 years of age will be vaccinated at this program during those hours.

A second seasonal influenza vaccination program will also be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, between the hours of 4:30 and 6:30 PM for ages 18 years and older.
