LRGH Flu Vaccine Clinics Set

LACONIA — Fall is just around the corner, and with the colder weather each year comes flu season.

"The flu vaccine is one of the best ways we can protect ourselves and our families from the flu," said LRGHealthcare Medical Director of Infection Control Dr. Abigail Dacuycuy.

"The CDC recommends that everyone, six months and older should get a flu vaccine, and we support this recommendation. For some people, the flu is truly a health risk; for others, it is just an inconvenience, but everyone benefits from limiting its spread in our community. Widespread vaccination, including vaccination of children, is the best way to protect everyone in our community."

Beginning Tuesday, October 1, flu vaccines will be offered at the following locations for anyone three years or older, or as noted:
