Laurel Health Hosts Drive-Through Flu Shot Clinics All October - Little Car Driving to On the Spot Flu Shots

Laurel Health Offers Drive-through Flu Shot Clinics Throughout October

 

By Kristy Warren

 

A flu shot is your best shot to beat influenza this flu season! Laurel Health will offer drive-through community flu shot clinics at Laurel Pediatrics and all seven Laurel Health Center locations throughout October. 

 

Participants are encouraged to schedule ahead with the Laurel Health location of their choice, but walk-ins can be accommodated. You do not have to be an established Laurel Health patient to schedule your flu vaccine at one of our drive-through clinics.

Laurel Health's drive-through flu shot clinics will be held on:

  • Oct. 11 - Troy LHC, 45 Mud Creek Rd., 10 am – 5 pm

  • Oct. 12 - Laurel Pediatrics - Wellsboro, 1 B Main St., 9 am - Noon

  • Oct. 12 - Mansfield LHC, 416 S Main St., 12:30 pm – 5 pm

  • Oct. 14 - Elkland LHC, 103 Forestview Dr., 11 am – 3 pm

  • Oct. 17 - Blossburg LHC, 6 Riverside Plaza, 9 am - 4 pm

  • Oct. 18 - Wellsboro LHC, 7 Water St., 9 am - Noon

  • Oct. 19 - Westfield LHC, 236 E Main St., 11 am – 3 pm

  • Oct. 25 - Mansfield LHC, 416 S Main St., 8 am – 1 pm

  • Oct. 25 - Wellsboro LHC, 7 Water St., 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

  • Oct. 26 - Laurel Pediatrics - Wellsboro, 1 B Main St., 9 am - Noon

  • Oct. 27 - Lawrenceville LHC, 32 E Lawrence Rd., 1 pm – 4:30 pm

 

Signs will direct patients where to pull in and park. Patients will remain seated in their car for these events and should bring their insurance card along if they have one. 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, all seven Laurel Health Centers and Laurel Pediatrics are also offering flu shots by appointment in the offices all fall. With 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.

 

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. October is the best time to be vaccinated for flu in our area to ensure protection lasts all flu season.

 

Help protect yourself and others by getting your flu shot this fall, staying home when sick, and washing your hands frequently for a full 20 seconds with soap and warm water.
