The Board of Health will be conducting an influenza vaccine clinic from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29, at the Dalton Community House, 400 Main St.

This clinic is for adults only and there is no charge, but Medicare enrollees are asked to bring their Medicare card.

Flu vaccine will also be administered to residents at Pinegrove, Pomeroy and River Run housing during the month of November following blood pressure screening clinics. Clinic dates and times for blood pressure screening clinics are posted at each individual housing.

Influenza vaccine provides protection only for the current circulating strain, which changes yearly.
