Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will conduct Saturday flu shot clinics for adults 18 and older from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 2, Oct. 16 and Nov. 6. The clinics will be held in the Medical Center Auditorium, 621 10th St. 

This year's influenza vaccine protects against the new H3N2 influenza strain, last year's swine flu, part of the H1N1 family, and a Type B strain - all in a single dose. Pneumonia vaccine also will be available. 

Those seeking flu shots should use the hospital's 10th Street entrance or the walkway from the attached parking ramp, where free parking will be provided. In order to expedite the inoculation process, wear a short-sleeved shirt or top.

Patients with health insurance should be prepared to present their insurance cards. No co-pay will be required. Individuals who do not have insurance will be charged $20 for a flu shot.

People exhibiting cold-like symptoms should wait until the next clinic to get their flu shots.
