Georgetown Hospital System will offer flu vaccines for the community on Wednesday, December 14, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the front lobby area of Waccamaw Community Hospital in Murrells Inlet and at the GHS kiosk located near JC Penney inside Inlet Square Mall in Murrells Inlet on Thursday, December 15, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

In general, anyone who wants to reduce his or her chances of getting the flu should get vaccinated. However, certain people should get vaccinated each year.
