With the recent cold weather conditions bringing to mind the fact that the flu season is apparently round the corner, and will bring along an increase in reports of sudden fevers, chills and muscle aches, the process of flu vaccination has been made easy by the Polk County Health Department.
With an ongoing attempt to help the people get flu shots quickly as well as conveniently, the once-a-year drive-thru flu clinic was held by the Polk County Health Department at the State Fairgrounds on Saturday.
The drive-thru clinic gave the Iowans the opportunity to drive up and get their flu shots in their cars itself, after filling out some basic paperwork. With the people having the option of handing over their insurance billing details or making a $20 payment if they did not have insurance, the clinic had a lot of people driving up for the flu shots.
Noting that the flu virus has less chances of spreading if an increasing number of people get vaccinated in time, Polk County Health Department’s Rick Kozin said: “It’s one more step we can take to make it that much easier for people to take a very simple step that protects them and it protects the rest of us because it minimizes the spread of influenza throughout the community.”
