Mount Nittany Physician Group flu shot clinics
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever this year to protect yourself and the people around you from the flu, and to help reduce the strain on healthcare systems responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to offer the flu vaccine to as many patients as possible and in the safest manner possible, the Mount Nittany Physician Group will be hosting several drive-thru flu clinics this fall. An appointment will be needed.
