County offers flu shots to those most at risk

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has scheduled a series of free clinics to give flu shots to the elderly, pregnant women, certain children and people with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, asthma and diabetes.

The county will hold clinics for the elderly and adults with chronic conditions on Saturday at Annapolis High School and on Nov. 6 at Old Mill High School in Millersville. Both clinics are scheduled to last from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Clinics for infants ages 6 months to 23 months and for children ages 2 to 12 with chronic health conditions are scheduled for Thursday and Nov. 4 at the county health services building, 3 Harry S. Truman Parkway, Annapolis. Those clinics are scheduled to last from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The clinics may require proof of residency, as well as age and medical condition. Officials recommend that patients bring driver's licenses, prescription bottles or other forms of identification.

Though the clinics are free, county officials will request that patients donate $10 each to help cover administrative expenses.

Information: 410-222-7343, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

New phase to begin on Spa Creek Bridge

The State Highway Administration is scheduled to begin the next phase in its rehabilitation of Spa Creek Bridge in the Eastport section of Annapolis tomorrow.

Highway officials will replace the southbound deck and sidewalk of the bridge and resurface the southbound roadway. Traffic will move both ways on the northbound side, which was replaced during the first phase of the project last month.

The $920,000 project is expected to continue through late next month.
