RANGELEY — Rangeley Family Medicine will hold its annual flu clinic from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the lower level of the Health Center.

Vaccines will be available to everyone at no cost thanks to support from the Rangeley Region Health and Wellness Partnership, and insurances will not be billed. Donations to the Health Center, however, are welcome.

According to the Maine Center for Disease Control, influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and death. Although anyone can get sick from the flu, certain populations are at a higher risk of having flu-related complications.

They include young children, persons age 50 or older, health care personnel, pregnant women, people with chronic lung disease, diabetes, heart disease, neurologic conditions and certain other long-term health conditions. Everyone 6 months and older should get their yearly flu vaccine, ideally by October.

Rangeley Family Medicine is located at 42 Dallas Hill Road. For more information, contact the Health Center at 864-3303 or visit www.RangeleyCHC.org.

Rangeley Family Medicine is a practice of HealthReach Community Health Centers, a system of eleven federally qualified health centers in Central and Western Maine.  A private, nonprofit organization celebrating 38 years of providing care, HealthReach is funded by patient fees, grants and individual donations.
