The City of El Paso Fire Department and the Department of Public Health, in partnership with the Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) 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,” city officials shared.
The drive-thru site is free of charge for all YISD employees, students, families and all members of the community with no appointment or insurance needed
All attending need to be wearing a face covering and remain in their vehicle.
In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu shot every year.
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.
