Fight the Flu

September 21, 2015

Fall weather brings lots of nice things, but the flu isn’t one of them.

To insure you and your children are well protected, Mercy Fort Scott will host a flu shot clinic and health fair on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. – noon at the Eastside Fire Station #2 at 23 S. Franklin St.

Learn all the tips to be tough as a turtle this flu season, plus get vaccinated. Children under 12 years old who receive a flu shot will receive a free ninja turtle mask.

Flu shots are only $25 (cash or check only, please). Insurance will be billed with proof of insurance. No pre-registration is required.

Kids are invited to try the fitness obstacle course set up by Mercy Health for Life and learn hand-washing tips - the best method to reducing chances of getting the flu.

Participants may also register for a chance to win smoke alarms donated by the Fort Scott Fire Department. Ninja turtle-themed refreshments and giveaways will be available, too.
