Harrisburg School District to offer free flu shots to community

Lincoln Administration Building

The Harrisburg School District is offering families a way to stay healthy over the winter.

Students, families, staff and community members can receive a free flu shot at a clinic that the district and UPMC will hold.

On Dec. 1, from 3 to 5 p.m., flu vaccines will be offered at the Lincoln Administration Building at 1601 State St.

Anyone six months and older is eligible for the vaccine. Parents/guardians must be present for minors to get vaccinated. Adult identification is required.

No appointment is needed and walk-ins are welcome, according to the district. Parking is available in the rear parking lot.

Face masks are required.

According to a statement by the district, “flu vaccines protect against several influenza viruses that research suggests may be most common during the upcoming season. Influenza is a potentially serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu vaccines are safe and effective and have been given to children, adults and seniors citizens for decades.”
