Local drive-thru flu shot clinics announced

• Sep 15, 2017 at 2:00 PM

Huron County Public Health (HCPH) will be holding drive-thru seasonal flu shot clinics in Norwalk, New London, Wakeman and Willard throughout the month of October.

Only adults will be vaccinated during these drive-thru clinics. For children under 18 years old and anyone unable to attend a clinic, please call 419-668-1652 Ext. 241 to schedule an appointment. 

Several drive-thru clinic locations and hours have been announced:

Willard — Noon to 2 p.m. Oct. 2 at Willard Alliance Church

New London — 3 to 4 p.m. Oct. 2 at First Baptist Church

Norwalk — 7 to 9 a.m. Oct. 12 at the Huron County Fairgrounds

Wakeman — 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at St. Mary’s Church

When attending a clinic, HCPH asks that you bring a picture I.D. and your insurance card. Most insurance types are accepted.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that people get their flu vaccine by the end of October. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu, especially if you or loved ones are at risk for serious flu complications. It is also important to consider getting your flu shot if you live with or care for those that are unable to get a flu shot, like an infant under 6 months old. Pregnant women should also consider getting a flu shot. Studies have shown that getting a flu shot during pregnancy can protect the baby after birth for several months.

Anyone unable to attend these drive-thru flu shot clinics, children under 18 years old, and for other vaccinations, please call 419-668-1652 Ext. 241 to schedule an appointment.
