The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu shot every year.
The City of El Paso Department of Public Health and Fire Department along with partnering agencies are offering drive-thru flu vaccines to those 6 months and older at the El Paso Zoo.
“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,” city officials shared.
The drive-thru site at the zoo is free of charge for members of the community with no appointment or insurance needed.
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.
