Fortunately, Morris Plains residents have a chance to stave off the bug, for free, at a flu clinic on Wednesday.
Morris Plains residents age 50 and over (or under 50 with a pre-existing condition and a doctor's note) are eligible to receive a free flu shot at the Community Center, located at 51 Jim Fear Drive in Morris Plains.
The shots will be administered from 1:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. Residents under 50 with a preexisting condition are also eligible with a doctor's note.
There will be a second clinic at the Community Center on Oct. 19 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
