The vaccines will be available to individuals considered high risk. Clinic hours will begin Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

Individuals are required to bring proof of identification and health coverage cards. They will also be asked to sign a form verifying they are high risk. There will be a $15 charge for the flu vaccine to those who do not have Medicare or Medicaid.

That's no B-25!

A plane at the Wings Over Wayne Air Show was misidentified in a Monday photograph of the News-Argus.

It was a B-26, not a B-25. The News-Argus apologizes for the error.
