First-ever drive-thru flu clinic to be held at Civic Center Tuesday


COLUMBUS, Ga. — For the first time ever in the Fountain City you can maintain your health without even getting out of your car.

Tuesday afternoon, the Columbus Health Department will provide flu shots during its “Drive-Thru” Clinic.

It will take place in the parking lot of the Civic Center from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Pre-registration for the event is encouraged and forms are available online.

Cash and debit cards will be accepted for those without insurance.

The standard dose vaccine is 35 dollars. The high dose vaccine is close to 50 dollars.

Pamela Kirkland, the Information Director at the Columbus Health Department, says representatives are offering some incentives this morning.

“We’re also going to have a drawing for two free hockey tickets. So anybody who gets a shot may have the opportunity to see the goal Saturday night against the Macon Mayhem and hopefully the Cottonmouths will win that game. So as soon as you get your flu shot you can register to get your free hockey tickets,” says Kirkland.

Kirkland adds, free barbecue sandwiches from Shane’s Rib Shack will also be given away while supplies last.

She says the vaccines available Tuesday will be good for those who are age three and older.

The health department can also provide all required immunizations for children of all ages, as well as adult vaccines, and travel vaccines. For all services, and more information, visit the Columbus Health Department online.
