Medical Services: Flu vaccines administered through October, November The Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department will begin administering flu shots the week of Oct. 22. The department will announce specific dates, times and locations later. Vaccine will be available first for individuals 65 or older and younger people with chronic health conditions. Health care workers in close contact with these high-risk individuals also will be offered immunizations in October. Younger, healthier people are asked to wait until November, when vaccines will be more plentiful. The department says both October and November are optimal months for receiving flu shots. ________ Kansas Responds: Student group organizes bioterrorism lectures Kansas City, Kan.
