Mercy Health – Lourdes Hospital is making it easy to get your flu shot this year. Flu vaccines have prevented millions of illnesses, flu-related doctor’s visits, and hospitalizations. Because of the likelihood that the flu virus and COVID-19 will spread this fall and winter, getting vaccinated is more important than ever.
Additionally, the Purchase District Health Department and the Graves County Health Department will have COVID vaccines available at all Paducah/McCracken County and Graves County locations.
The Health Departments will offer Moderna and/or Johnson & Johnson vaccines to those who would like to receive their COVID vaccine as well.
No insurance or pre-registration is required. Vaccines will be administered by either a Mercy Health provider or RN or LPN student from West Kentucky Community and Technical College.
Flu shots are available to anyone at least 9 years old. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive immunizations.
Vaccines will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.
Events will take place outdoors (weather permitting). Those who drive will be able to park and stay in their cars. Social distancing, masking, and sanitizing will be enforced.
