STILL NEED A FLU SHOT? Health authorities say it’s more important than ever this year. so the respiratory illness that’s preventable doesn’t put you more at risk for the one that’s not. Three more drive-up/walk-up clinics outside West Seattle schools are scheduled this week – and they’re open to everyone, free if you’re uninsured. See the list, and how to get your appointment, here.
PANDEMIC-STYLE HALLOWEEN: From decorations you can enjoy while driving by or walking by, to no-contact trick-or-treat events, here’s our West Seattle Halloween guide (and check it daily as we continue adding decoration locations!).
