It’s Flu Shot Time Too — “Flu season is approaching in Virginia, and health experts are urging everyone over 6 months, with rare exceptions, to get their flu shots. Walgreens, CVS, Giant and other pharmacies in Virginia are already scheduling appointments or offering shots on a walk-in basis as health officials worry about what a worse-than-usual flu season in the Southern Hemisphere portends for the United States.” [Patch]

Should Local Juvenile Detention Centers Consolidate? — “The number of young people detained in Virginia’s juvenile justice system has gone down dramatically over the last few years, which is leading to a potential reorganization of the system…Senator Dave Marsden is a Democrat from Fairfax County who is leading the effort to examine the possibility of consolidating some of the centers.” [WVTF]

Neighborhood Around Fair Lakes Shopping Center Grows — “Fair Lakes, a development west of Fairfax, Va., is like a little city. Places to live, eat and shop are within a minute’s drive — if not a minute’s walk — away. And if people are unable to find something to enjoy right in the community, residents say, other opportunities aren’t far.” [The Washington Post]

Happy National Teddy Bear Day — “Bring your teddy bear or other plush friend to learn how bears became many children’s first best friend. Have your bear or buddy join you on a teddy bear picnic in Nature Playce and make a bear craft. Children must be accompanied by an adult.” [Fairfax County Park Authority]
