Cecil Whig - - LOCAL - WHIG STAFF RE­PORT

— 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.

To make an ap­point­ment or for more in­for­ma­tion, call West Ce­cil Health Cen­ter at 410-3789696.
