MOORE – Norman Regional Health System will offer a free adult and pediatric flu shot clinic on October 31, 2015 at the Norman Regional Physical Therapy Temporary Building located at 700 S. Telephone Road. The Say Boo to the Flu vaccination clinic will be from 9 a.m. to noon, or until supplies are gone.

“Prevention is the best action that you can take to avoid getting the flu or spreading the flu,” said Julie Smith, RN, Infection Prevention Specialist for Norman Regional Health System. “It is important to get the influenza vaccine for all members of your family that are six months and older. Other prevention steps to take include washing your hands frequently with soap and water or hand sanitizer, making sure to cover your cough with a tissue or the inside of your elbow and staying home if you are sick to avoid spreading the illness to others.”

The walk-in clinic will offer free flu shots for both adults and children ages 3 and up on a first-come first-served basis. The clinic is provided by funding from the Norman Regional Health Foundation. Moore Pediatrics staff will be administering the pediatric flu vaccines during the clinic.
