Drive-Through Flu Vaccination A Success
Thank you to everybody who came out to the McIntosh County Health Department's drive-through flu vaccination clinic. The clinic not only made it easy for residents to get vaccinated, it also served as a public health emergency preparedness exercise. If you couldn't make it to the drive-through don't worry, you can stop by the health department any day of the week to get vaccinated. Don't let the flu get to you this season!
