FLU SHOTS: 5 more ‘drive-up’ clinics @ West Seattle schools

Thanks to MC for the photo from Monday’s “drive-up” flu-shot clinic at Chief Sealth International High School. Five more clinics, with the Visiting Nurse Association, are ahead in West Seattle this week and next for Seattle Public Schools students, staff, and families. You are welcome with or without insurance – MC notes, “Funding is available for free flu shots for uninsured kids and adults.” This year, health experts say flu vaccinations are more important than ever because of the pandemic – here’s why. Here are the upcoming clinics:

Wednesday, September 23

Madison Middle School – 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Friday, September 25

Louisa Boren STEM K-8 – 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

    Not everyone can drive, or has a close family member who does.  And some areas, like Arbor Heights, no longer have bus service either.  It would be helpful if flu shots (and coronavirus testing) were available via mobile units in rotating locations and neighborhoods.  I’ve tried asking Public Health, etc. the following question, but no one has an answer.  If you’re in a vulnerable group and have no transportation, either private or public, how do you test for Covid, especially if you have symptoms?  The only suggestion I’ve gotten is to take a bus, which seems insane.  Why suggest that a possibly infected person get on a bus and infect everyone else?  The only alternative as of now is to stay home and die alone.  Thanks a lot.

      The SCAN study is providing free at-home testing for COVID-19. Enroll online anytime, and a kit will be delivered to you within about 24 hours.

    So if you don’t have children attending public school can you not utilize these drive up clinics?

      I’d never heard of the SCAN study, so thanks for that information.  Doesn’t quite address the problem, but it’s a start.  Too bad the program can’t be expanded as a public service rather than an independent study.

Sorry, comment time is over.
