Flu shots and prescription cards

County health officials distributed 1500 doses of flu vaccine yesterday at the Armory on Hanshaw Road, and are waiting for another 350 doses from the state.

Tompkins County's prescription drug discount card will be arriving in January 2005, giving residents who don't have other prescription drug coverage access to lower prices.

The Journal reports on Veterans Day activities, including one that the Dryden Veterans Memorial Home will be holding today at 11am on the Dryden Village Green.

The Journal's editorial discusses Veterans Day, saying:

New York is home to 1.2 million veterans. If you know any of them, take a moment today. Seek them out. Let them know how much you appreciate their service to this country.

Also on the opinion page, Jennifer Semo of Freeville suggests that "If you are that dissatisfied with our current leader, then thank the good Lord that you live in a country where you are free to leave at any time."
