Drive-thru flu clinic Wednesday at Rogers County Health Department
Rogers County Health Department is hosting a drive - thru clinic for the flu vaccine on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2020, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The clinic is being offered to adults 18 years and older. A mask will be required to receive a flu vaccine and we ask that individuals stay in their vehicles.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a flu vaccine by the end of October, before flu begins spreading in the community. The flu vaccine can keep a person from getting the flu and make the illness less severe if a person gets it.
Individuals under the age of 18 and anyone unable to attend may call the Rogers County Health Department at 918-341-3166 for an appointment. Appointments are also required for other immunizations.
While flu vaccines will not prevent COVID-19, they will reduce the burden of flu illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths on the health care system and conserve scarce medical resources for the care of people with COVID-19.
