Say Boo to the Flu

With Halloween coming and the holiday season with its family gatherings not far behind, it’s important for everyone to stay up to date with their vaccines for illnesses like flu and COVID-19.

Flu season surges over the holidays as people travel to visit family and friends. Being vaccinated means you are less likely to get sick or to make others you care about ill. It’s important to protect your health and the well-being of those around you.

To help, we are holding a vaccination clinic for the community on Monday, October 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Sherwood Regional Library. To schedule an appointment, visit If you need a ride to the appointment or require other support, please contact the Mount Vernon at Home office by calling 703-303-4060 or by email at
