The Shelby County Health Department will be holding a FREE Flu vaccination clinic on Saturday, October 11 at the Hickory Ridge Mall from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (or while supplies last).

 

This event is being held as an emergency preparedness and response exercise designed to test the Health Department’s ability to respond quickly and effectively in the event of a widespread disaster requiring residents to receive medication or vaccinations in a short time frame.

 

The seasonal flu vaccine is an effective way to protect yourself and your family from the flu virus. We are happy to offer this vaccine to the public at no charge while we exercise our response capabilities. We encourage you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to be a part of this drill so that we may continue to improve our abilities and offer our residents the most effective public health services.

 

Thank you for your support!
