PREVENTION IS THE BEST MEDICINE…

Meeker resident Chance Walker receives a flu shot from Holli Dearman as other residents wait to be vaccinated.

RBC Public Health offered flu vaccines via drive through clinic in both Meeker and Rangely this year, with spectacular turnout. 104 people were vaccinated in Meeker and 56 were vaccinated in Rangely. A flu shot is especially important this year. Overloading hospital systems with sick patients from the flu and/or COVID-19 could result in more deaths, creating what some have dubbed a “twindemic.” You can schedule your flu shot through the public health office by calling 970-878-9520 or 970-878-9525.
