Health Fair, General Flu Shoot Out
This team was the driving force behind the scenes. However, without the participation of the 50 to 75 volunteers which includes; medical personnel, EMTs, greeters, vendor representatives and worker bees it would not have been possible.
The Flu Shoot Out served a duel purpose. Not only did it function well as a community health fair but also as a pandemic flu exercise. Should the need arise to distribute vaccinations, supplies, or information in an emergency our county strives to be among the leaders for preparedness. We will meet in October to review, revise and critique the function.
Organizers of this year’s event are to be commended. All it takes is four or five months of organizational meetings, assignments being distributed and completed, vendors willing to participate, volunteers offering expertise and skills, and the public being interested enough to show up. What the heck, see its simple.
