Drive-thru flu shot clinic Saturday

Staff Report

ROCKSPRINGS — The second annual Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic will be held this Saturday at the Meigs County Fairgrounds.

The clinic will take place from 9 a.m. to noon. near the Thompson-Roush Building at the Fairgrounds.

Flu vaccines are available for this six months of age and older.

Flu shots will be given while individuals remain in their vehicles. Those receiving the vaccines are asked to wear short sleeves for convenience.

Events such as this serve as an “exercise” to help us with our emergency preparedness plan and practice an effective manner of vaccinating a large amount of people in a short time period. We hope you will join us in this endeavor.

If you cannot attend the clinic on Oct. 6, administration of flu shots at the MCHD takes place between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. each Tuesday or by appointment.

Please bring your insurance or medical card with you to the clinic. The patient is responsible for any portion that is not covered by insurance. The cost for a private pay flu shot is $30 for those under age 65 and $50 for those aged 65+. There are a very limited number of flu shots available for those with no insurance coverage, and they will be given first come, first served.

Please contact us at 740-992-6626 if you have any questions.
