TRACY, Calif. — One of the longest-running free flu clinic programs in Northern California will continue this year with two opportunities for San Joaquin County residents at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, with the first once slated for Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Free flu vaccinations have been given in Tracy since the early 1960s, when longtime San Joaquin County obstetrician and medical leader Audrey Glover, M.D., saw a need in the community to prevent the spread of the disease during the flu season. Through the years, about 60,000 free flu shots have been administered to local residents.
“The flu was devastating during those early years,” said longtime friend Dan Schack, a Tracy engineer. “Dr. Glover felt there was a need to provide the vaccinations for free.” Read more... about Physician’s Longtime Free Flu Clinics Continue in Tracy
