The Southern Nevada Health District is asking residents to “Show Flu Who’s Boss” this season by getting their flu vaccine.

The clinics will offer 200 doses on a first-come, first-served basis and no appointments are necessary.

This season it is more important than ever for people to protect themselves, their families, and their community from flu. The Health District is encouraging flu vaccinations to help ensure medical resources are conserved, and the health care system is not overtaxed as the response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
