ST. MARYS - With flu season upon us, many are finding more options exist than ever before when it comes to when and where they can get the vaccine.
Whereas before, flu shot providers were limited essentially to doctors and physicians, now there are a variety of officially sanctioned providers, including pharmacies and nurse- run clinics, to administer the vaccine. The increased availability is the result of a nationwide effort on part of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to increase vaccination rates among the public.
