West Cecil Health Center to offer free flu shots
— West Cecil Health Center will hold its annual open house Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon, and part of the draw is free flu shots.
“It’s first come, first served,” said Mark Rajkowski, executive director of the center at 49 Rock Springs Road in Conowingo.
Rajkowski said Thursday that the protection against this year’s flu season — about 400
doses — would be administered to anyone 6 to 60 years old free of charge. He hopes that would draw people in to see the center and learn about its offerings.
“A lot of people still don’t know everything we do and all we provide,” he said.
Along with primary health care, West Cecil offers behavioral health, women’s health care, dentistry, a laboratory and pharmacy.
West Cecil Health Center opened in 2008 in response to the 2000 U.S. Census identifying that end of the county as medically underserved. While it is open to all, the focus is on helping those whose income may prevent them from obtaining much-needed health care.
