Where to Get a Free Flu Shot This Week in El Paso, Oct.19-24
The City of El Paso continues to offer no-cost flu shots at various sites across the city.
Vaccines received at the sites listed below are free of charge with no appointment or insurance needed. The clinics will be conducted drive-thru style in order to minimize contact as there is no need to get out of your car.
Vaccinations are available to anyone older than 6 months of age. While appointments are not needed, those taking advantage of the program are asked to print and fill out a patient questionnaire found at THIS LINK and take it with them. If you don't have access to a printer, the city suggests you let staff know and they will provide you with a questionnaire to fill out on-site.
With flu season underway, local leaders are urging El Pasoans to get vaccinated and help reduce the number of serious flu cases, which in turn will help keep hospital rooms available for those being treated for COVID-19 and other illnesses. And if you’ve been paying attention, then you know how dire the hospitalization situation currently is.
According to the literature found at the city-sponsored website BePowerflu, young children, pregnant women, older adults, and people with certain chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease are the groups and demographics at increased risk of serious flu-related complications.
