Veterans Prepare for Flu Season

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

If you want to get a flu shot, there are several places to go. Nurses provided those shots at the VA Outpatient Clinic on Friday.

The clinic was open to veterans, and the public. The nurses were from the VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic, and Riverstone Health.

However, the veterans who showed up for a flu shot want to stay healthy.

Veteran, Dean Dewing, said, "I have a kidney transplant, and I got to be very careful about catching diseases, and anything like that."

Veteran, Charles Goldy said, "I know of some people who had got the flu and they were sick, and I don't wanna be that way."

Veterans enrolled in the VA health care program received a free flu shot at the clinic, and was $25.00 for non-veterans.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.
