NEW HANOVER COUNTY — For two weeks, the county will host a drive-thru clinic for flu shots.

New Hanover County Health and Human Services will host its drive-thru vaccine clinic Sept. 25 to Sept. 29 and Oct. 2 to Oct. 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the HHS Annex, 1507 Greenfield St.

Health Director Jon Campbell said in a press release the county wanted to make getting the flu shot as easy as possible.

“Visiting the drive-thru can be relatively quick and our team can provide vaccines to multiple people in the vehicle,” he said in the release. “It’s also a great option for those that have mobility limitations, allowing the shot to come to them.”

Flu shots will be available to anyone over the age of six months and no appointment is required. There is no out-of-pocket expense for the vaccine, but residents with insurance are asked to bring their information to provide as part of the registration process.

“Every year, the flu shot is tailored to offer the best protection possible and getting a flu vaccine helps your body build that protection from illness,” Campbell said in a press release.
