Hutchinson Health Clinic now offering flu vaccines for the 2016-2017 season. According to Dr. Leah Willson, pediatrician at Hutchinson Health: "We will only be offering the shot this year. The recommendation that FluMist not be given this year was made by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) after reviewing the data and studies from the US Flu Vaccine Effectiveness Network.
