Free Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic Tomorrow (Photo) - 10/18/19

TRI-CITY, Ore. - Douglas Public Health Network and Douglas County Emergency Management have teamed up once again to provide a FREE drive-thru flu shot clinic on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM at the Tri-City Fire Department (140 S. Old Pacific Highway, Myrtle Creek). 

The clinic is an exercise for Public Health Officials and County Emergency Management to simulate mass inoculation in the event of a public health emergency such as an epidemic. If a widespread disease or other emergency were to occur, it may be necessary for the local health department to activate point of dispensing (PODs) to dispense large amounts of vaccine, antibiotics, or other medicines to the community. This POD exercise allows county officials to practice emergency plans and is a great opportunity for community members to get vaccinated against the flu and be involved in emergency preparedness in Douglas County.

“Influenza comes around every year and can be very dangerous for some seniors, those with weak immune systems and the occasional otherwise healthy child or young adult who gets a severe case of the flu." said Public Health Officer, Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer. "The very best thing you can do to protect yourself and others in the community is to get a flu shot."

The flu vaccines are completely free of charge and the process takes very little time. Those who intend to take advantage of the event are encouraged to download the dispense assist app to pre-fill out the check-in form. Insurance is not required for this event. 

For additional information, please contact the Douglas Public Health Network at 541-440-3571.

Participating agencies include: Douglas County Emergency Management, Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians, Oregon Health Authority, Aviva Health, Mercy Medical Center, Mercy Home Health, Umpqua Community College, SERV-OR, Red Cross and Amedisys Home Health.
