Free Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic, October 9th

NewsFlash Flue Fact

Come one, come all! The Nevada County Public Health Department (NCPHD) is conducting a free drive-thru flu shot clinic in Grass Valley on Tuesday, October 9th, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (or while supplies last) in the parking lot of Twin Cities Church at 11726 Rough and Ready Highway.


Free Drive-Thru Clinic

The drive-thru clinic is for adults and children 3 years of age and older. If however, 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. Participants will only be able to access the parking lot using the westbound lane off of Rough and Ready Highway; no eastbound access will be allowed due to safety concerns. This is a drive-thru only event; all participants will be required to stay in their vehicles. Again, due to safety concerns, walkups and bicycles will not be permitted.


It's a win-win: Practice for Public Health staff

The intent of this drive-thru event is to practice and evaluate response levels and preparedness of NCPHD staff and community partners 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 cars thus protecting not only themselves, but friends, family and the community as a whole. 


More Information

We are hoping for a large turnout 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 NCPHD exercise a success, so please come join us and help fight flu!  For more information or questions please call (530) 470-2658 or email public.health@co.nevada.ca.us.
