MDI Hospital is offering 5 flu shot clinics in October. Health experts are advising everyone to get a flu shot early this year, especially with COVID-19 still affecting the country. According to the Center for Disease Control "Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever during 2020-2021 to protect yourself and the people around you from flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic."

You are asked to please wear a face mask and practice physical distancing when attending the flu shot clinics. The cost is $40.00 for a flu shot, or for a high-dose flu shot the cost is $130.
