Glenwood United Methodist Restricts Flu Vaccines

Adults seeking free flu vaccines this weekend at an East Texas church's health fair, may find it a little more difficult.

State officials notified the Glenwood United Methodist Church it too must follow strict guidelines on who gets their flu vaccine.

They will now be offered to adults 65 and older and to those with chronic illnesses.

The health fair is at the Glenwood United Methodist Church in Tyler, Saturday, October 9, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

There will be a limited supply of about 500 flu vaccines. Also available, pneumonia and tetanus immunizations.
