“Under normal circumstances, it would be a good idea to get a flu shot so that you and your loved ones can stay healthy throughout the flu season,” Castro said. “But this year, when flu season coincides with a global pandemic, the importance is even greater. We can’t let one dangerous disease let us get complacent about another, so I encourage everyone to sign up and get a flu shot.”

The clinic, available to adults ages 18 and older, will be held on Nov. 14 between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. at the Astor Avenue Community Center, located at 7431 Astor Ave. in Hanover Park. Castro is hosting in coordination with Hanover Township, and AMITA Health will both provide and administer the shots. Registration is required, and space is limited.
