RUSSELL — Children’s flu

clinic Oct. 5


Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital and Tri-State Pediatrics will have a children’s flu clinic from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 5 in the lobby of Bellefonte Centre at 1000 Ashland Drive on the campus of OLBH.

The only area flu clinic for children, the event allows caregivers to have their children vaccinated in a “well” environment as opposed to a doctor’s office where other chåildren may be sick. In addition to the traditional vaccine, the clinic will offer Flumist, a nasal spray vaccine that is easier to administer to some children. Flu vaccine is recommended for children 6months to 18 years.

Cost of the vaccination is $20 for the traditional vaccine and $25 for Flumist.

For more information, call OLBH CareLine at (606) 833-CARE (2273.)
