Flu season is here and if you spend time on planes or in airports, it’s a good idea to get a flu shot.
No time for that?
Not if you’ve got a few extra moments to stop by one of these airport clinics:
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is partnering with the Cleveland Department of Public Health and offering complimentary flu shots post-security at Gate C2 on November 2 and November 17 from 8 a.m. to noon, local time.
