It’s about that time again to take your flu shot.
Monday, about 200 drivers registered to participate in the first of three drive-thru vaccination clinics.
The flu clinic opened at the Bismarck Event Center this morning and resumed this afternoon at four. About 15 nurses administered shots.
COVID-19 shots were administered in addition to the flu shots.
A driver who receives flu shots annually explained why she believes everyone should get the shot.
”I just think it’s really important because I can help protect other people against the flu if they can’t get the vaccine themselves.” said Ruby Tolstad.
“We’ve had a lot of people that have commented on the convenience of not having to get out of the vehicles and prefer the drive-thru method,” Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health Director Renae Moch said.
While the next drive-thru clinic will be on Oct. 12 starting at 8:30 a.m.
Registration is recommended but not required.
