The Oakland County Health Division is kicking off its annual flu shot clinic with an open house and free health fair that highlights National Get Ready Day.

The event is an opportunity to get a flu shot and learn more about emergency preparedness and public health, said Kathy Forzley Health Division Manager/Health Officer. The health fair will occur daily from  Sept. 17-Friday, Sept. 20 beginning at 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. at North Oakland Health Center, 1200 N. Telegraph Road, Building 34 East in Pontiac.

The flu typically takes the lives of 36,000 Americans a year. Getting an annual flu shot not only lessens the chance of getting the flu, but also helps decrease the severity of the illness.
