Health Department ready with flu shots

LYNDON—Anne Gray, Osage County Health Department administrator, strongly encouraged Osage County residents take advantage of the county’s flu vaccinations, available 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the Health Dept., 9th and Topeka, Lyndon. There is a fee for the vaccine.

“It’s very important for pregnant women and family members with babies less than six months old,” said Gray. She added that babies cannot be vaccinated until they are six months old, so that creates an added health risk.

Post office collection times change Oct. 26

OSAGE CITY—Post offices throughout Osage County will change their pick-up times beginning Oct. 26, according to Brian Sperry, regional spokesman, U.S. Postal Service. The change is designed to address people’s mailing habits and make up for billions of dollars in lost revenue. First class mail volume has declined 28 percent in the last six years, Sperry said.

“USPS doesn’t have the mail volumes to justify the size and capacity of our current network,” Sperry said.
