ALBION – Orleans Community Health held a flu shot clinic on Oct. 8 at the Albion healthcare center at the corner of Route 31 and Butts Road. There were 59 children vaccinated. These four are pictured with Jessica Downey, a health educator with Community Partners at Orleans Community Health.

Orleans Community Health teamed with the Albion Rotary Club for the clinic – “Say Boo to the Flu!”

The Rotary Club donated to Leon’s Fund, which was established as a non-profit organization in memory of Leon Sidari (pictured above), who was 4 ½ when he died on Christmas 2017, two days after getting the flu. Leon is the son of Albion natives Laura (Lyman) Sidari and Tony Sidari. They are both medical doctors who were based in San Antonio for six years before recently moving to Dayton, Ohio.

Leon is the grandson of Nathan Lyman, a long-time Albion Rotarian who now lives in Ithaca.

This youngster was one of the 59 to be vaccinated.

Orleans Community Health is planning more outreach and education events about the importance of getting flu shots.
