You will have to wear a face covering and stay in your vehicle when you go to get the flu shot. The free flu shots are part of the Be PowerFlu prevention campaign. It was put into place to help reduce the number of flu cases and to help prevent serious related illness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone older than 6 months get a flu shot every year. Getting a flu shot not only will help you avoid the flu but it will help keep down the number of flu cases and flu-related hospitalizations. Because of the ongoing pandemic, it's important to keep area hospital rooms available for people who need to be treated for COVID-19 infections and other serious illnesses. Getting a flu shot will help do that.
