Shannon Clinic is hosting drive-thru flu shot clinics all this week from 2 to 7 p.m., and Next Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The clinics are being held in the Foster Field parking lot at the corner of South Jackson and University Ave.
The flu shot clinics are for patients of all ages. No appointment is necessary. The clinic will accept and file insurance, or patients may pay 35 dollars per vaccine. Patients are asked to bring their insurance card and wear a mask to receive their shot.
Vaccination before December is best since the timing ensures that protective antibodies are in place before flu activity is typically at its highest.
The flu shot is approved for people ages 6 months or older, including healthy people as well as those with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease.
