Flu Program

A flu shot is your BEST protection against the flu!

Our Flu Program offers the convenience of a medical professional coming to your office or business to offer flu shots to your staff. We also service public sites such as libraries, senior centers and schools. Since the inception of this program we have given over 45,000 injections that have prevented illness and promoted health to recipients.
