TODAY - Drive Through Flu Clinic at County Fairgrounds
Anyone 6 months of age or older can get a low-cost flu vacciination at the drive through flu clinic hosted by the El Dorado County Public Health Division this Thursday, November 1 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive, Placerville (in the Pavillion).
"This type of flu clinic caters to anyone who would like the convenience of staying in their car while being vaccinated but is especially helpful for those individuals with limited mobility," said County Immunization Coordinator, Cathy Dunbar. The cost of the vaccine is only $10; no one will be turned away due to inability to pay. Parents should bring their child's shot record. One additional low-cost flu clinic will be held in the Placerville area at the Mother Lode Lyons Hall, 4701 Missouri Flat Road, Diamond Springs on November 6 from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. That clinic will be a regular walk-in flu shot clinic. No appointment is needed. The cost is also $10.
