Joplin Health Department Will Offer Free Flu Shots Wednesday
The Joplin Health Department will hold a drive thru flu clinic this week for the city’s residents. Staff will administer 275 vaccines in the Joplin Memorial Hall parking lot Wednesday (11/18) from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. or until the vaccines are gone.
Vaccinations are only for those 19 or older and are free. You’ll need to take a photo i.d. The entrance to the clinic will be in the parking lot entrance on Joplin Street.
Health professionals urge people to get a flu vaccine every year, but this year is especially critical as hospitals are already filling up with COVID-19 patients. The flu is expected to add to the concern about hospital capacity.
