Watch Video: Jackie Evancho and Family Encourage You to Get Flu Vaccine

Patch has list of places to get flu shots in Pine-Richland area.

With more flu cases popping up, it's time to get serious about your flu shot if you haven't gotten it yet. 

Classical crossover singer Jackie Evancho and her family, who live in the Pine-Richland community, recorded a public service announcement encouraging people to get their flu vaccine.

"You’re not too old, too healthy or too late to get your flu vaccine," Jackie says at the conclusion of the 30-second spot.

Flu shots are available in the Pine-Richland area at many locations, including:

Thanks for bringing this up, Cindy. I got mine in October. I can't imagine why anyone would wait this long to get the flu shot which has been available since late August. Now, doctors and pharmacists are SO busy seeing, and filling prescriptions for, people who are ill, that there may be long waits to get a shot. Unfortunately, the procrastinators are now unhappy that they are not getting instant service. When the Evancho family recorded this Public Service Announcement would have been the time to get the shot, not in the middle of the epidemic.It's not too late but I hope those who have waited witl be courteous to the hard working health professionals who are trying their best to meet the needs of both the sick and the well.
