FLU SHOT: Clinics Start In Polk County
The first Polk County Health Department flu clinic is being held Friday.
It’s in Ankeny at Northview Middle School from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
There are many more clinics scheduled from now until mid-November and you can see a list of the clinics here.

The majority of cases occur in January and February.
