LANCASTER – While COVID-19 vaccinations are getting most people’s attention lately, health officials are warning that flu season is also upon us, and the LA County Library will host a clinic at its Lancaster location next month to offer free flu inoculations.
It will be the eighth consecutive year the library has worked with the county Department of Public Health to provide flu shots at its location, with about 2,500 immunizations provided last year. No appointments are necessary at the clinics, nor is proof of insurance.
“The well-being of our staff and customers is always on our minds,” LA County Library Director Skye Patrick said in a statement. “Working with Public Health to make flu immunization clinics available to our customers allows us to provide them with a valuable resource to keep them and their loved ones healthy.”
The local flu shot clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, at the LA County’s Lancaster Library, located at 601 West Lancaster Boulevard.
