The first of thirteen flu shot clinics was held Thursday by the Mansfield-Ontario-Richland County Health Department. The four-hour clinic was in the Arts and Crafts building at the fairgrounds, with people of all ages coming in to protect themselves against the up-coming flu season. Public Health Nursing Supervisor Mary Derr says everyone should get a flu shot, but it's especially recommended for children and seniors, and those with health problems that make them suseptible to the flu. Walk-ins are welcome, and the process takes less than ten minutes. The cost is $22 for adults aged 19 and older, and $10 for children. The health department accepts Medicare/Medicaid, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Medical Mutual Insurance. Bring you driver's license and insurance card. The health department has scheduled flu shot clinics through September and October, with one in mid-November, and expects to immunize 3000 people.
