These changes are necessary to properly prepare for the upcoming flu season.  Immunizations will be very important to keep our community healthy, and we want to be accessible for those that have delayed care during the COVID emergency. 

We thank our community for their patience during these trying times. If we continue to work together, we can keep our community as safe and healthy as we can.
