MERRILL, Wis. (WAOW) – Flu vaccination clinics for Lincoln County students are planned at area public schools, as well as the county’s Service Center.

The free shots or nasal mist will be given by the Lincoln County Health Department, which says an annual flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu.

While the vaccinations are recommended for everyone ages 6 months and older, these clinics will be for students in grades 4K through 12.

“Being able to save parents time and help keep kids healthy and in school is a benefit for all,” said Shelley Hersil, the county’s health officer, in a news release.

Register at least one day in advance by clicking here; walk-ins will not be accepted.

Face masks will be required.

The clinics will be:

  • Oct. 19: Merrill High School auditorium, 8 a.m. to noon
  • Oct. 26: Prairie River Middle School auditorium, 8 a.m. to noon
  • Nov. 4: Lincoln County Service Center (open to all Lincoln County public and public students), 4 to 5 p.m.
  • Nov. 9: Tomahawk School District auditorium, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
