DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. – The Douglas Public Health Network, partnering with local emergency management and medical personnel, will be providing free flu vaccinations on October 19th.

The vaccines will be given as part of an exercise, allowing county officials to practice emergency plans in place. Officials said this will help them prepare in case a widespread disease or other emergency were to occur.

Officials said participants will receive flu vaccinations, provided free of charge and administered by area health professionals. Participants can either stay in their vehicle or use the walk-up option.

“Influenza comes around every year and can be very dangerous for some seniors, those with weak immune systems and the occasional otherwise healthy child or young adult who gets a severe case of the flu,” said Dr. Bob Dannenhoffer, the Douglas County Public Health Officer.

“The very best thing you can do to protect yourself and others in the community is to get a flu shot,” Dannenhoffer added.

The event will be happening from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Tri-City fire station and will be available to anyone 6 months and older. The fire station is located at 140 S Old Pacific Hwy in Myrtle Creek.
