This Tuesday, the El Paso Zoo will be offering free flu shots to the community.

The Be PowerFlu Prevention Campaign is bringing the City of El Paso Department of Public Health and Fire Department along with partnering agencies to offer drive-thru flu vaccines for free.

As we near colder weather and flu season, the flu prevention campaign aims to save lives by urging the El Paso community to get their flu shots this year.

Recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that everyone older than 6 months receive a flu shot every year.

Prevention is key as flu-related hospitalizations can overload current hospitals that are trying to keep hospital rooms available for those being treated for COVID-19 infections and other serious illnesses.

Flu shots will be administered to those 6 months of age and older at the El Paso Zoo this Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
