This new year, make a resolution to protect your health by getting a flu shot. The Long County Health Department is hosting a drive-through flu vaccination clinic on January 15th from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the IGA parking lot off Highway 84 in Ludowici. Just drive up, complete some paperwork and get vaccinated – you don’t even have to get out of the car.
“Our lives are so busy sometimes it’s hard to fit in a trip to the doctor for your flu shot,” says Betty Dixon, Clinical Coordinator for the Coastal Health District. “If you haven’t had your flu shot yet, we hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity for a quick, convenient, and no-cost immunization.”
During the drive-through clinic, if you don’t have insurance, the flu vaccination will be provided for free. If you do have insurance, we’ll bill your insurance company, but you’ll pay no out-of-pocket cost. Vaccinations will be available for children, adults and senior citizens.
To save even more time, you can click the button below to download and print the vaccine consent form. Bring the completed form with you to the drive-through clinic on January 15th.
It’s not too late to get a flu shot. The flu season in our area typically peaks around February, so there are still several months when the virus may be circulating in our community. A flu shot is your best protection against getting the flu.
