Flu Vaccine Clinic
Did you know that flu vaccines have prevented millions of illnesses, flu-related doctor visits and hospitalizations? Because of the likelihood that the flu virus and the latest variant of COVID-19 will spread this fall and winter, getting vaccinated remains you and your family’s best source of protection against getting sick from the flu. Mercy Health will be offering free flu clinics throughout the region. In addition to administering flu shots, the Purchase District Health Department will be offering COVID-19 vaccinations.
No insurance or pre-registration is required. Vaccines will be administered by either a Mercy Health provider or an 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-serve basis while supplies last. Events will take place outdoors (weather permitting). Social distancing, masking and sanitizing will be enforced.
