Annual Drive-thru Flu Shot Clinic This Saturday at Fairgrounds
September 30, 2015 3:57 pm
Despite a wet forecast, the annual drive-thru flu clinic scheduled for Saturday (10/3) from
8-11 a.m. at the Knox County Fairgrounds will go on as scheduled. This marks the 11th year for
the drive-thru clinic in which flu shots are given to people while they sit in their vehicles.
Attendees at the drive-thru clinic will enter the fairgrounds through the lower gate on the east
side of the fairgrounds off of Wooster Rd. Traffic will be routed to the north, around the race
track and toward the grandstand area. There will be several checking stations along the way.
Health department staff will be available to walk along cars to complete registration forms.
The flu shots will be given in the Merchant’s Building. There will be two lanes of traffic
entering the building where registered nurses will staff several shot stations. Attendees will
not need to get out of their vehicles to receive the shot. They are advised to wear loose-fitting
clothes so that their arm is accessible to the nurse.
The drive-thru clinic is for adults only, age 18 yrs. and older. There are no medical restrictions.
Most insurance plans, plus Medicare Part B, Medicare HMOs and Medicaid will be accepted for
payment. Otherwise the cost is $25 payable by check or cash. Attendees need to bring their
medical card and a photo ID such as a driver’s license, to verify identification.
For those unable to attend the drive-thru clinic, a walk-in clinic will be held at the health
department on Monday (10/5) from 3-5 p.m. For additional flu shot clinics sponsored by the
health department, call 740-399-8014.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people get the flu
vaccine as soon as it becomes available in their community. It takes about two weeks after
vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection against influenza.
