With the heart of flu season for this area upon us, Otter Tail Public Health is reaching out to vaccinate as many people in this part of the county as possible.
Public health nurses were at New York Mills Public School last week to administer both H1N1 and seasonal flu shots to students, staff, and members of the community.
Nurses administered 270 H1N1 vaccinations through both shots and the nasal mist in NY Mills, along with an unspecified number of seasonal flu shots, according to Diane Thorson, OTC Public Health Director.
A vaccination clinic is also being conducted at the county health office in NY Mills this week, Dec. 28-30. The clinic is open to everyone, with the next clinic to be held Jan. 4. Thorson said they will also be going to nusing homes and assisted living facilities to administer vacccinations over the next couple weeks.
