HERMISTON, OR – Good Shepherd Health Care System (GSHCS) is providing another free drive-thru flu shot event this Saturday, November 14, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on the main hospital campus located at 610 NW 11th Street in Hermiston.
“Getting your flu vaccination this year is even more important than in the past as we continue to struggle through this COVID-19 pandemic. Statistics from the 2019 flu season show that by getting your child vaccinated, it will reduce their risk of even needing to go to the doctor by 55%. Help reduce your risk of infection and of transmitting the virus to a more vulnerable loved one or neighbor by getting your flu shot,” shared Dr. Matthew Carlson, Family Medicine physician at Good Shepherd Urgent Care.
Last month’s drive-thru event successfully administered over 600 flu shots to individuals throughout Umatilla and Morrow counties. We have another 850 regular doses and 300 high doses (for those 65 and older) available to give out this Saturday. This event is open to all individuals 6 months and above with a first-come, first-served process. Mask/cloth face coverings are required. Registration forms in both English and Spanish are available online at www.gshealth.org/flushots. Individuals are encouraged to complete the form online in advance, print and bring with them to the event. If access to a printer is not available, individuals can email their form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms will also be available at the event.
