Medical Center holds flu shot clinic for seniors
October 25, 2018
The Wrangell Medical Center held a flu shot clinic for Wrangell's senior citizens last Friday at Harbor Light Church. The clinic was open to community members aged 65 and older, who were able to come in and were able to receive a high-dosage flu vaccine.
An article on the medical center's website explained that, while receiving flu vaccinations are important for everyone, it is especially important for senior citizens. People over the age of 50, those with certain chronic medical conditions, and those who care for the elderly are at a higher risk of complications from the flu than others.
