OLBH to offer flu clinic for children
RUSSELL, Ky. — Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital (OLBH) and Tri-State Pediatrics will conduct its seventh annual children’s flu clinic Saturday, Oct. 5 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the lobby of Bellefonte Centre 1000 Ashland Drive on the campus of OLBH.
The only area flu clinic geared toward children, the event allows caregivers to have their children vaccinated in a “well” environment as opposed to a doctor’s office where other children may be sick. In addition to the traditional vaccine, the clinic will offer Flumist, a nasal spray vaccine that is easier to administer to some children.
Flu vaccine is recommended for children ages 6 months to 18 years regardless of whether a child has other chronic conditions.
The cost of the vaccination is $20 for the traditional vaccine and $25 for Flumist.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Huntington Museum of Art will open its doors free of charge on Saturday, Sept. 28, as part of Smithsonian magazine’s ninth annual Museum Day Live! A nationwide event, Museum Day Live! offers free admission to visitors presenting a Museum Day Live! ticket at a participating museum or cultural institution.

“The Huntington Museum of Art is very happy to be participating again with Museum Day Live! and we hope that people will come out on Sept. 28, to see the current exhibits that HMA has to offer,” said HMA executive director Margaret Mary Layne.
