Flu Clinic

No Cost Community Flu Clinics 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought huge public health challenges and the flu vaccination is being strongly encouraged from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and Local Public Health (LPH). It’s likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both spread this fall and winter. This means getting a flu vaccine this season is more important than ever to reduce the risk of flu for yourself, your family, and your community. It can also reduce the burden of flu illness on the health care system and save medical resources to care for people with COVID-19.
