The ACHD will be holding a drive-thru flu clinic at John Wood Community College on Sunday, September 13 from 11 am to 2 pm. Those who wish to take part in this clinic are asked to please enter using the Harrison Street entrance. The ACHD is using this drive-thru flu clinic as practice to help them better prepare for dispensing future COVID-19 vaccinations.

The ACHD will be able to bill most insurance companies, with Medicaid and Medicare also being accepted, just make sure you bring your insurance card when going through the drive-thru clinic. Cost for the vaccine is $30 for the flu vaccine, and $55 for a high dose flu vaccine

The clinic will be available for anyone who wants to get a flu vaccine this year, which again is highly recommended to keep our community safe and to prevent the flu spreading to others.
