DRIVE-THRU SEASONAL FLU CLINICS HELD TOMORROW

Free Seasonal Influenza Vaccinations at Three Locations in One Day


VISALIA – On Thursday, October 1, 2009, the Tulare County department of Public Health will host its third annual drive-thru seasonal flu clinic for adults. Drive-thru clinics will be operated at Mooney Grove Park in Visalia, Jamison Stadium in Porterville, and a walk-in clinic will be hosted at the International Agri-Center Heritage Complex in Tulare.

The mass vaccinations for seasonal flu will be held from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm at each of the three locations. Any adult over the age of 18, except pregnant women and those with severe allergies, will be eligible. The vaccination will be completely free of charge to the attendees. The only questions that will be asked will be concerning any condition persons may have connected with receiving the seasonal flu vaccine. No H1N1 Flu vaccinations will be given; vaccinations are seasonal flu vaccinations only.

The Visalia and Porterville clinic will feature a quick, simple, and easy alternative to the "regular" way of receiving a seasonal flu shot, as no one attending these sites will be required to leave their cars. For those choosing to visit the Tulare site, they will be asked to park, and enter the International Agri-Center Heritage Complex.
