MONTROSE, COLO –Stop the flu bug! Join Montrose County, the City of Montrose, Town of Olathe, Montrose Memorial Hospital, River Valley Family Health Center, the Basin Clinic, and Pediatric Associates on Tuesday, November 9th from 3-7pm at the eighth annual free drive-through vaccination clinic. This year’s drive-through clinic locations include the Montrose County Event Center (1036 North 7th Street, Montrose), Olathe Sweet Corn Park (59618 US-50, Olathe), and the Basin Clinic (421 Adams Street, Naturita). Regular dose flu shots are available and FREE for individuals over 6 months of age. Free high-dose flu shots are also available for seniors 65+ during senior hour from 3-4pm, or while supplies last.

“Getting a flu shot is the best thing that you can do to help protect yourself, your family, and the community from influenza,” said Montrose County Medical Advisor Dr. Joseph Adragna, MD, MHA, MGH. “Flu can mean a few days of feeling bad and missing work, or it can also result in more serious medical complications. The flu shot helps reduce your risk of flu illness and hospitalization.”

"People age 65 and older have the highest risks of flu complications," said Montrose County Public Information Officer Katie Yergensen. "We received feedback from past vaccination clinics that our residents wanted to have the high-dose option and we are happy that this year we can provide high-dose shots to seniors. Seniors interested should come to the vaccination clinic between 3-4pm during senior hour at all locations."

The drive-thru clinic will be set-up to operate safely with COVID-19 concerns in mind. Organizers have made accommodations to allow for physical distancing in the walk-up clinics, and will again offer a drive-through model in Olathe at the corn park. Mask usage at the clinics is recommended.

At all locations participants have the option to stay in their vehicles for the duration of the process. Upon arrival, all participants must sign a consent form. The event is designed with the participant in mind—cars with more than four people in the vehicle or those requiring additional time will be directed to the walk-up parking in front of the Event Center. Vehicles attending the Montrose County Event Center location must enter through the right-hand turn lane off the San Juan Bypass. Volunteers include staff from Montrose County, the City of Montrose, Montrose Memorial Hospital, Town of Olathe, Montrose Fire Protection District, River Valley Family Health Center, Basin Clinic, Montrose County Sheriff’s Office, Pediatric Associates, Montrose Police Department, and the Montrose County Sheriff’s Posse.

Shots are available while supplies last. For more information please visit www.montrosefluclinic.com.
