City, UTEP partner to offer free Flu Vaccines for community

The City of El Paso Fire Department and Department of Public Health, in partnership with the University of Texas at El Paso, are offering free flu vaccines to those six month of age and older during this flu season.

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.

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu shot every year.

A vaccination registration form must be completed for each participant. To complete the form in advance, access it here, print it out and bring it to the clinic. The form also will be available to fill out on site.

“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,” officials shared.

For more locations and information about the flu vaccine, visit bepowerflu.com.  For more information about COVID-19, visit EPStrong.org.

The drive-thru site is free of charge for members of the community with no appointment or insurance needed.  Individuals should enter through Sun Bowl Drive, and everyone in the vehicle will need to be wearing a face covering.
