The county Health Department is offering the flu vaccine for free if you’re 65 years or older, if you have Medicare or Medicaid, or are uninsured or under-insured. It’s available on Fridays until March 27th, from 11 am to noon. You need to make an appointment. Call 845-364-2534. You can learn more at www.FLU.gov. So far this season there’s been one flu-associated pediatric death in New York State.
