ROCKPORT – Pen Bay Medical Center will be offering weekly driving flu clinics in October. Driving flu clinics have been designed to be user-friendly and no appointments are necessary. Those looking to get the flu shot need only follow the signs to a location of their choice. These will lead to a drive-thru designated by traffic cones where clinical staff wearing personal protective equipment will greet them and administer the flu shot.
Drive-through clinics will be held on Mondays, October 4, 11, 18 and 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the new health center building, located at 15 Anchor Drive.
These clinics are open to insured adults; participants are kindly requested to bring their insurance card to the clinic. Self-payment will not be accepted. High-dose influenza vaccines will be given to the extent of available stocks. All drive-thru clinics are if time permits.
