A free flu clinic for Delawareans, with music and incentive card giveaways. The Division of Public Health (DPH) will offer free
influenza vaccines to Delawareans age 9 years and older.
The media are invited to an 11:30 a.m. photo opportunity of Attorney General Matt Denn receiving his flu vaccination from DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay. The flu clinic is also being run as a preparedness exercise, so DPH staff can practice their readiness in the event of a large-scale health emergency and test the ability to accommodate all people ages 9 and above, including those with disabilities.
