County officials: Another free flu clinic planned

The Pennsylvania Department of Health - in conjunction with the Delaware County Department of Intercommunity Health - will conduct a free walk-in shot clinic 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 1 at Garrettford-Drexel Hill Fire Company, located at 323 Edmonds Ave. in the Drexel Hill section of Upper Darby.

The clinic is open to residents 6 months of age and older.

Although the clinic is free, Dr. George Avetian, the county's senior medical adviser, said that residents are encouraged to bring a canned good or nonperishible food item as a donation. He said that even though the county's Thanksgiving Food Drive is over, the county would still like to continue with its efforts to help the local food banks.

On another note, state Sen. Daylin Leach, D-17, of Upper Merion, is expected to make an appearance at the Delaware County Council meeting Tuesday. An aide for the senator said he will be there to introduce himself and ask if anyone has questions about issues in Harrisburg.
