NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC – New Hanover County Health and Human Services will be hosting a drive-thru flu vaccine event on Election Day to provide residents a streamlined opportunity to protect themselves from illness as colder weather begins.
Interested individuals can visit the Health and Human Services Annex Building’s parking lot at 1507 Greenfield Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, November 7 and receive a vaccine from the comfort of their vehicle. Flu vaccines will be available to everyone 6 months and older.
“We are starting to see cases of flu increase in our region as we move further into the time of year when respiratory viruses are most prevalent,” said Health Director Jon Campbell. “That makes this a great time to get a flu shot so that your protection is at its highest level with holiday gatherings and other indoor activities starting to become the norm.”
No appointment is required and there will be no out-of-pocket cost. Residents who have insurance are asked to bring their insurance information for registration.
