Flu shot clinic taking place on Friday

A drive-in flu shot clinic will be taking place on Friday, from 7:30 to 4:30, in the southwest parking lot of the Flint Hills Mall.

Newman Regional Health spokesperson Beth Hammond says everyone should get a flu shot.

Conditions for flu season can vary, and Hammond says shots are recommended now, rather than later.

Hammond and Flint Hills Community Health Center-Lyon County Health Department Public Health Director Renee Hively says the clinic is the product of a partnership between both health entities.

Hively, who appeared recently on KVOE's Morning Show, says people don't have to get out of their cars -- just roll up those sleeves and roll down the window. And don't worry if you cannot attend the drive-in clinic.

Hammond will be on the KVOE Morning Show tomorrow at 6:50 am, talking about the flu shot clinic with Ron Thomas and Chuck Samples. 14 KVOE will broadcast live shortly after 8:30 am.
