Annual Tradition - Drive Thru Flu Shots

Snoqualmie Valley residents ready to get drive thru flu shots on October 1st.

Snoqualmie, WA, September 23, 2011 --( As the temperatures cool and children start to eye Halloween, it also becomes time for everyone’s favorite autumn activity – the flu shot. On Saturday, October 1st from 9:00am to 2:00pm, residents can roll up their sleeves, roll down their car windows and drive through the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital’s west parking lot to receive their annual flu shot without leaving their car. Simply drive to 9575 Ethan Wade Way SE by way of following the signs on either SE North Bend Way or Railroad Ave SE.

Cost is $30 cash. The Hospital will bill for Medicaid and Medicare. Receipts will be given for other insurance reimbursement. The flu shot is free, with no visit cost, for Affordable Access members. You must be 12 years or older to get the flu shot at the drive thru clinic. Flu shots for children younger than 12 are available at the Snoqualmie Ridge Medical Clinic.

“Getting vaccinated is the single best way for people to protect not only themselves against flu, but their loved ones as well,” said Alison Gabel, Occupational Health Coordinator for the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District. She added, “No appointment is necessary and you don’t need a prescription. This is an easy way to get vaccinated while out running Saturday errands.”
