COATESVILLE, PA — Getting vaccinated against the flu is more important than ever this year. The Chester County Health Department’s Gordon Early Literacy Center Community Flu Clinic is just around the corner. It is happening this coming Monday, October 17th, from 4 to 6:15 p.m.

According to officials, there are still quite a few appointments available for the Gordon Early Literacy Center Community Flu Clinic. The clinic is being held in order to help prevent the spread of the flu, which can be especially dangerous for young children and older adults. Those interested in attending the clinic can sign up at chesco.org/flu (English) or chesco.org/gripe (Spanish).

Flu vaccines and COVID boosters will be available. Vaccinating against the flu can help protect you and your loved ones from this serious disease. The CDC recommends that everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine every year. This is an opportunity to get ahead of the flu this season.

The Gordon Early Literacy Center is located at 351 Kersey Street in Coatesville. In the coming weeks, additional clinics will be held at the Owen J Roberts Middle School in Pottstown, Fugett Middle School in West Chester, Technical College High School Pennock’s Bridge Campus in West Grove, and Tabernacle Baptist Church in Coatesville.

Also, the Chester County Health Department is inviting the community to complete a Community Health and Wellness Survey. Open from now until Nov. 6th, the short anonymous survey will be used to improve initiatives and programs that serve the Chester County community. The survey is available in English and Spanish, and takes only a few minutes to complete. Feedback is essential in helping the department to better serve the community.
