Stillwater Medical Center will offer drive-through and walk-up flu shots Thursday

Event begins at 6 a.m. and continues until shots are gone

STILLWATER, Okla. — Flu season is right around the corner, and the Stillwater Medical Center Foundation is offering drive-through and walk-up flu shots Thursday.

The event begins at 6 a.m. and will continue until the 5,000 plus shots are administered. The shots are free, but Stillwater Medical Center spokeswoman Shyla Eggers said that $10 donations will be appreciated.

The donated money will go to offset the funds to provide the event in future years. This is the 14th year the event has taken place.

The flu shots will be given at the Stillwater Medical Center. To accommodate the event, Seventh Avenue will be closed from Monroe to Blakely streets and Adams Street will be closed from Seventh to Eighth avenues.

“The largest lines are first thing in the morning but there are certainly times when they can be right through the line in three or four minutes,” Eggers said. “They could wait 20 or 30 minutes, but there is no way of predicting that.”

Eggers said anyone can get the flu and anybody can give the flu so it is important to get the flu vaccine.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, everyone older than 6 months should get a flu vaccine this year.

To participate in the drive-through flu shots, enter the hospital's easternmost parking lot from Monroe Street. For more information, call (405) 533-6090.
