It's still not too late to get flu vaccinations, and the Authority is offering vaccinations every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to Noon and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gannon Nursing Center 2110 East 10th St., #6.
"We're trying to make it more convenient for people to get their vaccinations," said John E. Horan, executive director of the Authority. "Many people don't have transportation or can't get to other centers where the vaccinations are available."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, October or November is the best time to be vaccinated, but people can still be vaccinated in December and later. Flu season can begin as early as October and last as late as May.

In general, anyone who wants to reduce his or her chances of getting the flu can be vaccinated. However, it is recommended by the CDC that certain people should be vaccinated each year. They are either people who are at high risk of having serious flu complications or people who live with or care for those at high risk for serious complications. During flu seasons when vaccine supplies are limited or delayed, the CDC makes recommendations regarding priority groups for vaccination.
