If you still need a flu shot, you’re in luck. This Saturday, the State of Alaska Section of Public Health Nursing in collaboration with numerous local organizations is offering free flu shots.
The shots will be offered during a community emergency drill. The exercise will help providers train for events where medications or vaccines need to be dispensed to every member of a community in a short period of time.
Lorne Carroll is a public health nurse for the Homer Public Health Center. He says in an emergency, the plan is to provide medicine to residents within a few days.
