Doctors Hospital of Manteca has some 500 flu shots available to anyone over 50 years old at a clinic that is scheduled to be set up at the Manteca Senior Center in the 200 block of Cherry Lane Wednesday from 9 a.m. until noon.

Eight registered nurses from the hospital staff will be on hand to administer the traditional vaccine that includes the H1N1 strain for seniors’ ultimate protection from the flu virus.

Hospital auxiliary volunteers are also scheduled to be working the clinic to ensure a speedy flow of traffic from members of the public who want to take advantage of the offering.

Last year’s free vaccination clinic administered 350 shots in the three-hour period of the free offering, according to a hospital spokesman.
