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!).

    The drive-up flu shot was super easy – if you’re on the fence about it, just do it. It is especially important to protect the most vulnerable this year. I did the drive-up at Sealth HS and was done within 15 minutes, and didn’t even have to get out of the car. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
