Get a Free Flu Shot and Maybe Win a Bike
The weather may still be hot, but the season of sniffles is right around the corner. The Heroes of Health and Safety Fair wants to prepare locals for it with free flu shots. It’s just one of the event’s offerings, which will include free fluoride treatments, free health and dental screenings, and diabetes education as well as giveaways of children’s bikes, bike helmets, smoke detectors, and life jackets. There will also be a jaws-of-life demo, hands-on fire extinguisher practice, and medical helicopters and an ATV course to explore. The event will be held on October 12, 10 a.m.–3 p.m., at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport. Admission is free. For more information, go to facebook.com/sutterlakeside.
