Free flu vaccinations set in Chico
Adults, as well as children ages 3 and up, can get a free flu shot at one of Enloe Medical Center’s three scheduled vaccination clinics this month. No-cost preservative-free vaccine for pregnant women will also be available at one of the clinics and by appointment at Enloe OB/GYN physician offices. All vaccines will cover four common flu strains.
“Getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu,” says Judy Cline, director of Enloe’s Emergency Department, Prompt Care and Trauma Services, “and getting it each year helps build immunity to the variety of strains of flu that we may see.”
For pregnant women, a limited supply of preservative-free vaccines will be available at Enloe’s Walk-in Clinic at the Community Wellness Expo. Also, Enloe Women’s Services physician offices will have free preservative-free vaccines available by appointment for their pregnant patients. Women should contact their OB/GYN office for details.

Fresno airport gets new round of federal funds
Fresno Yosemite International Airport is getting a $13.3 million grant to help pay for repairs to a taxiway.
It's part of a total of $318.1 million in airport infrastructure grants to 78 airports in 34 states across the United States as part of the Federal Aviation Administration's Airport Improvement Program, which funds various types of airport infrastructure projects, including runways, taxiways, and airport signage, lighting, and markings.
Airports are entitled to a certain amount of AIP funding each year, based on passenger volume. If their capital project needs exceed their available entitlement funds, then the FAA can supplement their entitlements with discretionary funding.
