Flu Shots Still Offered
A Patch reader wants to know if flu vaccines remain available.
Greater Annapolis Patch reader Mark Phillips sent in a question about flu shots. He wants to get a flu vaccine to protect himself and wondered if the county was still providing them.
According to the Anne Arundel County Department of Health website, the flu vaccine offered this year protects against both H1N1 and other strains of seasonal flu. The Department of Health is still offering walk-in clinics for free flu shots and nasal spray.
