 Flu Clinics --

In an effort to reduce the spread of influenza among school children and their families, the Lincoln County Department of Education and Lincoln County Health Department partnered to provide flu clinics at all county schools recently. Local and regional public health staff gave 435 vaccines as part of the effort. School nurses and the Office of Coordinated School Health helped plan and facilitate the clinics. The school-based clinics strengthen the health department-school working relationship to increase preparedness in the event of the need for a mass vaccination event.
