Thursday, October 7, 2021 Fight the Flu with San Juan Regional Medical Center’s Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinics

San Juan Regional Medical Center wants to keep you and your loved ones healthy this flu season. We are offering two opportunities to get a free flu shot as part of our commitment to our community as a community owned and operated hospital. Our annual drive-thru flu shot clinics will be held on Saturday, October 23 and Saturday, October 30. 

Getting a flu shot is especially important this year as we continue to battle COVID-19. While we don’t know what the flu season will bring, we can all do our part to reduce the spread of infection by receiving a vaccine. A flu vaccine not only protects yourself, your family and your community from flu, it also reduces the burden on our healthcare system.

The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older receive an annual flu vaccination, ideally by the end of October. Furthermore, you no longer need to wait to get a flu shot if you’ve recently received a COVID vaccine. The CDC endorses the co-administration of the COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as other vaccinations.

The drive-thru flu shot clinics will be held in the north visitor parking lot located at the corner of Maple Street and Schwartz Avenue in Farmington (Parking Lot F). Please enter Maple from the east to get in line. You will be directed through the parking, where you will receive your vaccine, and you will exit on Schwartz. The flu shots are available on a first come, first serve basis for adults ages 18 and older. Please talk to your child’s provider to schedule a flu vaccination for children under the age of 18. Patients at San Juan Health Partners Pediatrics can call 505.609.6700 to schedule their flu shots.

As we work to keep our community healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, you will need to wear a mask. To make the process as smooth as possible, participants are asked to wear a short-sleeved shirt, or roll up their sleeve ahead of time, and be prepared to receive the vaccine in the upper arm near the shoulder by the time their car reaches the nurse.
