Need a flu shot but having trouble affording one? Clinic this weekend

The county has just announced two free flu-shot clinics this weekend – and if you can get to Des Moines, the closest one is there:

Free flu vaccine clinic this weekend
Excellent option for people without health insurance

Public Health – Seattle & King County will offer free flu vaccinations for adults and children at special clinics in Des Moines and Shoreline on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The clinics are an excellent opportunity for people who do not have health insurance to cover the cost of flu vaccination.

Health experts recommend that everyone over six months of age should get the flu vaccine to protect their health and the people around them. This year, a single vaccine provides protection against the H1N1 flu that caused outbreaks last year and two other flu viruses that are expected to cause illness this season.

In addition to providing free flu vaccines, the clinics will also serve as a preparedness exercise for Public Health to practice its ability to provide vaccinations to a large number of people in a short amount of time. More than 1,000 doses of vaccine will be available at each location.

Date: Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010

Time: The flu clinics are open from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. or until vaccine supply is exhausted.

Locations: Highline Community College (Student Union Building)
2400 S. 240th St., Des Moines, WA 98198

Parkwood Elementary School (Gymnasium)
1815 North 155th Street, Shoreline
