MORE INFO ~

  • If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the next month, please see your primary care or prenatal care provider to get your annual flu vaccination.
  • Medical information form completed on site.
  • Spanish materials available.
  • Please wear clothing that allows easy access to your upper arms.
  • The purpose of the drive-thru event is twofold: to provide free flu shots to community members and to give NCPHD staff and community partners a chance to practice and evaluate response levels and preparedness in the event of a large communicable disease outbreak or public health emergency. If a significantly large communicable disease outbreak occurs, such as a pandemic, NCPHD will not want individuals to congregate in large spaces to receive prophylactic medicines. The drive-thru mechanism allows for county residents to receive medicine without ever leaving their car, thus protecting not only themselves, but friends, family and the community as a whole.
  • The Public Health Department is hoping for a large response from the community, not only to protect residents from the flu, but also to learn valuable lessons and enhance response efforts for future exercises.
  • Public participation is essential to making this exercise a success, so please join in and help fight flu!
