WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C. (WECT) - Getting the flu vaccine doesn’t take long and the New Hanover County Health Department is trying to make it convenient for everyone to fight the illness.

A flu vaccination clinic will take place Oct. 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Wrightsville Beach Town Hall Council Chambers. Please bring your picture ID and insurance card.

Anyone receiving a flu shot will be asked to complete a New Hanover County Outreach Vaccination Authorization Form. You may bring the completed form with you or fill one out upon arrival.
