CN offering flu shot
TAHLEQUAH, Okla.— The Cherokee Nation is offering a free flu vaccination clinic for citizens and other tribal health patients from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 24-Sept. 28 at W.W. Hastings Hospital.
“Every year as flu season approaches, we strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated against the flu,” Health Services Senior Director Dr. Charles Grim said. “This year is no exception. People who get vaccinated have less risk of getting the flu and if they do get the flu it is usually a milder case.”
Established patients at the hospital can come directly to the Café Hastings to register and receive vaccines. Those needing to establish a chart will need to report to registration first.
The flu shot is recommended for everyone. The Centers for Disease Control encourages the vaccine for those individuals who are vulnerable to influenza, such as children ages 6 months to 19 years, expectant mothers, anyone over 50, people who have chronic medical conditions and health care workers.
For more information, call Dr. Brandon Taylor at 918-458-3179.
