PVHMC to Host Free Drive-Thru Flu and COVID-19 Booster Vaccination Clinic

Public health officials have expressed mounting concerns over the convergence of the flu season and COVID-19 and are urging everyone who is eligible to get a flu shot and COVID-19 booster as soon as possible. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) will host a free drive-thru flu shot clinic and offer the new COVID-19 booster to all who are eligible on Saturday, November 12, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu shot can keep you from getting sick with the flu, prevent transmission of the flu to people around you, reduces the risk of hospitalization, severe illness and death, and is an important preventive tool for people with chronic health conditions, such as heart disease and chronic lung disease. The CDC recommends everyone eligible to stay up to date with the COVID-19 booster to protect against the virus and keep family and friends safe and healthy.
