Laurel Health Will Offer Drive-through Flu Shot Clinics in Mid-October

 

By Kristy Warren

 

A flu shot is your best shot to stay healthy this flu season! The Laurel Health Centers will be holding drive-through flu shot clinics at each LHC location in mid-October. Participants are encouraged to schedule ahead with the Laurel Health Center of their choice, but walk-ins can be accommodated. You do not have to be an existing Laurel Health patient to schedule your flu vaccine at one of these clinics.

 

The drive-through flu shot clinics will be held on:

  • Oct. 11 - Wellsboro LHC, 7 Water St., 9 am - noon

  • Oct. 12 - Elkland LHC, 103 Forestview Dr., 9 am - noon

  • Oct. 13 - Mansfield LHC, 416 S Main St., 9 am - noon

  • Oct. 13 - Troy LHC, 45 Mud Creek Rd., 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm
    Note: Troy LHC will be offering flu and COVID-19 vaccines to those 12+ during their afternoon / evening drive-through event; all three COVID-19 vaccines will be available (Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen) in addition to flu shots

  • Oct. 14 - Westfield LHC, 236 E Main St., 9 am - 11 am

  • Oct. 15 - Lawrenceville LHC, 32 E Lawrence Rd., 9 am - 11 am

  • Oct. 15 - Blossburg LHC, 6 Riverside Plaza, Noon - 2 pm

 

Signs will direct patients where to pull in and park. Patients should bring their insurance card, wear a mask, and stay seated in their car. The flu shot cost will depend on the patient’s insurance; if cost is a barrier to care, contact the Laurel Health Centers and ask about their sliding fee program, which helps income-eligible families with healthcare costs.

 

If you cannot attend one of the drive-through clinics, the Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Pediatrics are also offering flu shots by appointment in the office throughout October. With eight convenient locations throughout Tioga and Bradford Counties, protection is only a call away. Click here for a full list of Laurel locations and contact information.

 

With COVID-19 still spreading across the U.S., flu season is poised to be especially challenging again this year. Ensure your family has peak protection by getting your flu shot. October is the best time to be vaccinated for flu in our area to ensure protection lasts all flu season.

 

There are many strains of influenza (flu), and which types are most prevalent during flu season can change every year, so it’s important to get your flu shot annually. Flu shots can help prevent you from catching certain types of flu and make flu symptoms milder if you do catch it.

 

Help protect yourself and others by getting your flu shot this fall, staying home when sick, washing your hands frequently for 20 seconds, masking in public, and maintaining six feet of distance with those who do not live in your immediate household.
