Drive Thru Flu Shots Scheduled

HAYS, Kan. (Oct 2, 2012)   The Hays Medical Center Foundation is sponsoring Free Drive Thru Flu Shots on Sunday, October 14 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.  The flu vaccine will be given to adults and children aged 6 months and older.  Children 2 years and older may be given the flu mist.  

People 65 years and older may receive a high dose formulation of the vaccine.  The dose contains four times the amount of influenza antigens and induces a high immune response in this population who are most susceptible to complication of flu.  More information on the high dose vaccine can be seen at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/vaccine/qa_fluzone.htm

People wishing to receive a flu shot should enter the North Entrance of HaysMed on Canterbury Drive.  You are asked to wear a short sleeved shirt.  No injections will be given to anyone allergic to eggs and thimerosal.

Along with the Drive Thru Flu HaysMed associates will be sponsoring an optional food drive.  People are asked to bring a non-perishable food item which will be donated to the community assistance center.
