Public Health offering free flu shots at Tukwila Community Center
October 20, 2011 · 12:45 PM
Public Health – Seattle & King County will offer free flu vaccinations for adults and children on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tukwila Community Center.
Health experts recommend that everyone over six months of age get the flu vaccine to protect their health and the people around them. The flu can cause significant lost time from work and school, as well as the expense of doctor visits. In some instances, it can also cause hospitalization and even death.
The flu clinic is an opportunity for people who do not have health insurance to get a free flu vaccination.
In addition to providing free flu vaccines, the clinic will also serve as a preparedness exercise for Public Health to practice its ability to provide vaccinations to a large number of people in a short amount of time. More than 1,000 doses of vaccine will be available.
The Tukwila Community Center is at 12424 42nd Ave. S., Tukwila. It's just off Interurban Avenue.
