Haywood County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) will host a pediatric flu shot clinic from 2 — 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 157 Paragon Parkway in Clyde. Flu shots will be available for children ages 6 months to 19 years old.
Receiving a flu shot is the most effective way to prevent getting the flu, and all individuals ages six months and up are encouraged to receive a yearly flu shot. The vaccine is made with a killed virus that cannot cause illness. Individuals are encouraged to receive a flu shot as soon as possible, as it takes about two weeks to develop protection against the virus.
HHSA is located at 157 Paragon Parkway, in Clyde, next to Tractor Supply. The clinic will be held in the Public Health Services Division (health department).
