Rambo Has New Entryway, Flu Shots

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The Rambo Memorial Health Center in downtown Zanesville is being affected by a city sewer repair project. 

The project has shut down the Main Street entrance to the center. Nurse  Shannon Bell has instructions on how to quickly and safely read the parking lot. 

“The biggest challenge that people are gonna face this year is getting into our parking lot. Unfortunately our main entrance that faces main street is closed. So if you are coming from the north you need to access the alley right before Big Brothers Big Sister, that is on seventh street. That will bring you into the backside of our lot. If you’re coming from the south you’re probably gonna be coming in in on sixth street, coming across the sixth street bridge.”

Rambo Memorial is also offering flu shots at heavily marked down prices for Muskingum County residents. Director Gloria Brown has more information. 

“Our flu vaccine is here. Everybody is trying to get back into the swing of school and everything else, but don’t forget the flu shot. It’s very important, it takes about two weeks after getting the shot for it to be effective. If you get flu symptoms it’s usually like fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, cough, headache and runny or stuffy nose.”

Appointments for flu shots need to be made beforehand and shots can be administered in or out of the building.
