No flu shots at health fair
For the first time, flu shots will not be given at the Marion County Health Fair.
That means the only services that will be offered are hospital laboratory blood tests.
County health department administrator Diedre Serene said the reason is because the number of COVID-19 cases in the county has been rising.
This year’s health fair will be 8 to 11 a.m. Nov. 7 at USD 408 Sports and Aquatic Center, 104 N. Thorp, Marion.
People coming to the health fair for blood tests will be required to wear masks.
Toys for the Marion County Toy Run will be collected again this year.
