Chico, Calif.  – In an effort to hold off what the Centers for Disease Control reports could be
another powerful flu season ahead, Enloe Medical Center is making it easy for residents to get a flu shot.

One efficient way to get a shot is being offered in the form of a drive-through vaccination program.

Thursday, September 27, 2018, the parking lot of Calvary Chapel in Chico, California will be transformed to look more like a medical clinic.

Enloe Medical Center is offering free flu vaccinations to those over the age of six. Organizers say with an intense flu season expected, it is especially important for children and the elderly to receive a flu vaccination.

Organizers of the event say in years past, upwards of one-thousand people have taken advantage of the drive-through vaccination event.

It is believed one reason the success rate has been so high is because the process is easy. Margie Rackley, with the Enloe Medical Center Outpatient Center, says participants simply drive up, fill out some paperwork while safely driving through the line, then a nurse double-checks some questions then administers a flu shot while sitting in the car.

And for those who believe getting a flu shot will make them sick? Rackley says the vaccination uses a dead virus. That means it cannot make you sick. She says if you do become ill after receiving a shot, she says most likely you were already fighting something.

You can take advantage of the Enloe Medical Center free flu shot drive-through vaccination event
Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 7am - through 1pm, in the parking lot of Calvary Chapel,
1888 Springfield drive in Chico.
