We’ve reached the mid-point of October, which means—hard as it is to believe—winter is around the corner.
With the winter, of course, comes the traditional cold and flu season. Help fend off the flu by getting your low-cost flu shots today in clinics sponsored by the Bethlehem Health Bureau.
The First Presbyterian Church, 2344 Center St., hosts one clinic from 9 to 11 a.m. Inoculations are available to all city residents for $10 each.
Liberty High School hosts another clinic from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Klein Classroom Center.
The Liberty clinic is geared toward kids, though adult vaccines will also be available. They will have flu "shots" and Flu Mist (nasal spray). Students who attend the clinic with a parent or guardian will receive the vaccine for FREE. A parent/guardian must be present to sign consent.
The clinic is open to all students of the Bethlehem Area School District and both public and non-public students are encouraged to attend.
