Free Flu Shots

Nurse Supervisor Jill Cooke reminds us that the flu shot is free this year for employees with State Insurance coverage, that the supply of doses is limited, and that the flu is already in our area. Employees planning to get vaccinated should do so as soon as possible for the vaccine to be effective before flu becomes widespread.
