ARCHBOLD, OHIO – Northwest State Community College nursing students are hosting a Health Fair on Thursday, November 13. In addition to health tips, the fair will feature a flu shot clinic courtesy of the Fulton County Health Department. The entire event will run from 9:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m., with flu shots beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Flu vaccines, both injectable and mist, will be available for $40 or $55 for a high-dose vaccine for those 65 and older. This year’s vaccine offers additional protection, including two “B” strains and two “A” strains of influenza.
“Nursing students will offer free blood pressure screenings, skin cancer derma scan screenings, information on cardiovascular health and more,” said Deb Mignin, NSCC nursing faculty. “With cold and flu season approaching, now is a great time to stop by for a flu shot and tips on how to stay healthy this fall and winter.”
The Health Fair will be held in the Atrium at NSCC. It is free and open to the public. For more information, visit NorthwestState.edu or call 419.267.5511.
