Hardin Memorial Hospital is mobilizing a flu clinic on its Wellness on Wheels mobile health unit this week to combat the widespread presence of influenza in its service area.

The clinic is from 7:30 a.m to 12:30 p.m. Thursday in the Elizabethtown Wal-Mart parking lot. Michelle Murphy, director of marketing and public relations for HMH, said 300 adult doses of the flu vaccine will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis for anyone age 18 or older.

The cost is $21, cash or check, and cannot be billed to insurance plans except Medicare Part B. Those with Medicare Part B must bring their cards with them, Murphy said.
