Audio: Grundy County Health Department drive-through flu shot clinic set for Wednesday, October 17th

For the first time in five years, the Grundy County Health Department will hold a drive-through, flu shot clinic Wednesday, October 17th from 10 to 1 o’clock.

Motor vehicles will follow a course from southbound Princeton Road, turning onto 17th Street, turning into the lot of First Christian Church where paperwork is checked, exiting onto 18th, turning onto Harris, and then driving into the emergency services complex where the flu shots are administered to persons who remain inside their vehicle.

Kelli Hillerman and Abby Oberman, with the Grundy County Health Department, discuss the advantages of the clinic.

 

 

Kelli Hillerman says the flu shot clinic involves nearly 100 volunteers.

 

 

The drive-through flu shot clinic is open to Grundy County residents age 18 and older. Participants are asked to wear a short sleeve shirt to receive the flu shot.

The health department can bill Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance and will also will accept donations by those not covered by insurance.

The health department also plans to announce additional flu shot clinics for children and adults who can not be present for the drive through event.
