The City-Cowley County Health Department will be host once again to its annual drive-through flu shot clinic in Arkansas City.

This year’s event will be from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Agri-Business Building, located at 712 W. Washington Ave.

This clinic is open to anyone aged 6 months or older who wishes to lower his or her risk of contracting the influenza virus this winter.

Three varieties of vaccines will be available at the clinic.

The cost of inoculation usually is covered 100 percent by most forms of insurance, but for those with no insurance, the cost is fairly low.

Those planning to participate in the drive-through clinic are asked to bring proof of insurance (if any) and a form of photo identification.

For questions, call the health department at (620) 442-3260.
