Procrastinators $10 Flu Shot Holiday Party

Early indications are that we are set to have an unusually early (and possible severe) flu season. Kansas has not yet seen widespread cases reported but the eastern US is already seeing a spike. If you have not yet received your flu shot, it needs to be done as soon as possible - as it takes about 2 weeks to provide protection. However, it's not too late and sometimes good things come to those who wait - like $10 flu shots!

Get a $10 flu shot IF you wear an ugly Christmas sweater AND bring a donation for Just Food.

What a great opportunity for the community. Love the idea of adding fun to flu shots. The flu season is expected to be bad this year. If you can't make Dr. Neu's event, the Health Department offers them on a walk-in basis at its clinic, 200 Maine. For more information, call 843-0721.

Beats the dickens out of the $65 I had to pay for a flu shot at the Lawrence Family Practice Center. Never again!
