The Shawnee County Health Department is providing free flu shots specifically for uninsured people aged at least 19 years old.
The event is Wednesday from 4-6:30 p.m. at Hummer Sports Park, 2751 SW East Circle Dr. S #1. Linda Ochs, director of the health department, said anyone interested in attending should head toward the parking lot by the stadium for a flu shot.
No appointment is necessary and participants do not need to bring anything with them. Ochs said there are both drive through and walk up options, so anyone taking the bus can get a shot.
She said participants can fill out paperwork online at the Shawnee County Health Department’s immunizations web page before arriving, but that paperwork will also be available at the event.
