Sebasticook Valley Hospital (SVH) will hold “Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic”

On Saturday, October 4th, Sebasticook Valley Hospital (SVH) will hold a “Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic” at Pittsfield’s Bud’s Shop ‘n Save parking lot in the Somerset Plaza. Adults can receive their seasonal flu shots from the warmth and comfort of their vehicles. Flu shots will be administered from 10am to noon.

Terri Vieira, SVH president/CEO and EMHS senior vice president, stated, “SVH wants everyone to have the advantage of a seasonal flu shot that can keep them healthy during the flu season. Our drive-thru flu shot clinic reaches people with busy lives or mobility issues who may not have a chance to see a provider for a flu shot. The overwhelming response to this event has proven it is important to our community, and SVH is pleased to continue to offer this service.”

Flu shots will be provided to adults (18 years and older) for $25 per shot. The shot is free to Medicare card holders and is reimbursable by most medical insurances. Drivers and passengers who wish to receive the flu shot should wear short-sleeved shirts and should expect to be asked to wait in their vehicles for at least fifteen minutes after the shot to ensure no adverse reaction to the immunization. MaineCare patients should seek their seasonal flu shots from their primary-care providers.

For more information, please contact SVH health and wellness education coordinator Laurie Alexander at 487.3890 ext. 2731.

Accredited by the Joint Commission, SVH comprises a progressive 25-bed critical access hospital with a wide range of outpatient services throughout the region. SVH is a member of Eastern Maine Healthcare System (EMHS).
