The Montgomery County Health Department will host drive-up flu vaccination clinics on Thursday, October 29 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Eastdale Mall, 5501 Atlanta Highway, Montgomery. In addition to the drive-up clinic, flu shots will also be given at a station inside at the mall’s food court area from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

No appointment is needed. The vaccines are free and will be provided for those 19 years of age or older. Facial coverings are required, and patients are asked to wear short-sleeves.

Getting a yearly flu vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and your family from potentially serious complications during influenza season. Among the vaccines’ benefits are reducing the risk of flu illness, doctors’ visits, hospitalization and even death

Flu symptoms include fever, headache, sore throat, muscle aches and fatigue. These symptoms are similar to COVID-19 symptoms and may make illnesses more difficult to diagnose and treat. Getting a flu vaccine will reduce the chances of possible misdiagnoses and of getting both diseases at the same time.
