Free Flu Shots

Saint Agnes provides convenient, quick and easy flu shots

It is not your typical drive-thru, no burger or fires here! On Saturday, November 15, 2008, Saint Agnes Hospital will host a drive-thru flu clinic where residents can receive their annual flu shots without even leaving their car. The flu shots are free but you must be 18 years old and pre-register by telephone. Annually 5-20% of the United States population develops this viral infection and 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications. Each year, the influenza virus changes slightly making vaccines from previous years ineffective. However, receiving the current flu shot will significantly decrease your chances of developing the influenza virus. With flu season rapidly approaching there is no better time then now to receive a flu shot!
