Need a Flu Shot? Shannon is Offering a Drive-Thru Clinic


SAN ANGELO, TX – Shannon Clinic is hosting drive-thru flu shot clinics October 5-7 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The clinics will be held in the Foster Field parking lot at the corner of S. Jackson and University Ave.

The flu shot clinic is for patients of all ages; families are encouraged to come together to receive their vaccines. No appointment is necessary. The clinic will accept and file insurance, or patients may pay $35 per vaccine. Patients are asked to bring their insurance card. High dose vaccine will also be available by request.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people receive their flu vaccine as soon as the vaccine becomes available in their community. Vaccination before December is best since the timing ensures that protective antibodies are in place before flu activity is typically at its highest. The flu shot is an inactivated vaccine that contains killed virus and is given with a needle, usually in the arm. Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body and the antibodies provide protection against influenza virus infection.

The flu shot is approved for people ages 6 months or older, including healthy people as well as those with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart disease.

For more information, please call Shannon Clinic at 325-747-2226.
