The Cabell-Huntington Health Department will be hosting their first flu clinic Friday, Sept. 12, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for all individuals who live, work or volunteer in Cabell County or the City of Huntington. This clinic will be at the health department, 703 7th Ave. in downtown Huntington. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over 6 months of age.
