STONINGTON - The Northumberland County State Health Center will conduct a free flu clinic from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Stonington Volunteer Fire Company, Route 61.

This year's influenza vaccine appears to be well matched with what is currently circulating in Pennsylvania and the rest of the country, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the Northumberland County Department of Public Safety and the state Department of Health.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive the vaccine. Appointments are not needed. Individuals who have had a reaction to a flu shot in the past, are allergic to eggs or have a history of Guillain-Barré syndrome are advised to see a health care provider.
