To support wellness in the community as flu season approaches, the Juaneño Band of Mission Indians will host a free community flu clinic on Saturday, Nov. 1.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the best way to prevent influenza is to get vaccinated each year. The CDC recommends all persons over 6 months of age get a yearly flu shot, and highlights that it is especially important for infants, young children, pregnant women and adults over 50.

The event will be held at Tribal Hall, located at 31411 Matanza St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The clinic is open to all. For more information, call 949.488.3484.

Community sites in both Dana Point and San Clemente will offer vaccinations as well.
