City COVID-19 Clinics open for Free Flu Shot Events; Will prepare staff for Covid-19 vaccine

City officials announced Wednesday afternoon that the City’s Department of Public Health will be using the new COVID-19 clinics to conduct test runs by offering free flu shots to anyone 6 months and older at four community events, in preparation for the COVID-19 vaccine.

All attending need to be wearing a face covering and for the drive-thru sites individuals need to remain in their vehicle.

The “Be PowerFlu” prevention campaign is meant to reduce the number of flu cases and prevent serious related illness during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Reducing the number of flu cases will also reduce the number of flu-related hospitalizations, which in turn will help keep hospital rooms available for those being treated for COVID-19 infections and other serious illnesses.

The “Be PowerFlu” events are free of charge for the community and require no appointment or insurance:
