Flu season is upon us, and the City of Lubbock is ready with the shots. The Lubbock Health Department received its supply of vaccine Wednesday for this year. They are closed now, but they will open again on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $10 per shot for people six months of age and older.
People from all denominations gathered to pray for the hungry people of the world on Wednesday. The South Plains Food Bank organized the service at Covenant Medical Center. It's part of Octoberfast and World Hunger Day. Each year, the food bank asks people to fast for one meal and donate the cost of that meal to help feed the hungry. The money is used to buy meals at Second Helpings Community Kitchens throughout Lubbock. If you would like to help, mail your donations to:
South Plains Food Bank

You can also donate through your local church.
