Health News & Updates
The North Shore Health Department will be holding a Flu Clinic on Saturday, October 21st from 9-11 am at Nicolet High School.
Nicolet High School is centrally located in our service area (Bayside, Brown Deer, Fox Point, Glendale, River Hills, Shorewood and Whitefish Bay) and our hope is that children who live in these communities or students who attend school in these communities will come to the clinic.
Because yearly flu vaccination is the first and most important step in protecting yourself and others against flu viruses, we also hope that parents, grandparents, and other adults in the North Shore attend.
