Ascension Medical Group in Portage and Waupaca counties will offer various flu shot clinics to the community during October.

“Getting a flu shot is always important, but reducing illness and hospitalization from flu is critical this year to protect our community and healthcare workforce as they continue to care for people with COVID-19,” said Stewart Watson, M.D., North Region Vice President of Clinical Services, Ascension Medical Group Wisconsin.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu shot each year.
