FLU SHOTS: More drive-through clinics set at 2 local schools

(Reader photo: Teacher Michael Franzen getting his flu shot during September CSIHS clinic)

More drive-through flu-shot clinics are coming up starting this week at two local schools, with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association and Seattle Public Schools nurses teaming up to offer the service. The dates/times:

MADISON MIDDLE SCHOOL (45th and Spokane)
Wednesday, October 21 – 9 am-5 pm
Wednesday, October 28 – 10 am-5:30 pm

Thursday, October 22 – 10 am-5:30 pm
Monday, October 26 – 10 am-5:30 pm
Wednesday, October 28 – 9 am-5 pm

Make an appointment in advance for everybody in your household (ages 4 and up) who’ll be coming along for a vaccination – go here to pick the date, time, and location. Bring your insurance card; if you’re uninsured, shots are available at no cost.

ADDED: It’s since been clarified, ALL are welcome – not just students/staff/families – at all of these clinics, and for anyone who doesn’t have insurance, the cost will be covered.

    If you aren’t able to make these flu clinics, remember that all Seattle Public Schools students can go to one of the school-based health centers for free immunizations. Check Neighborcare.org for the West Seattle sites.

    Has anyone been able to confirm if these drive-through clinics are open to the general public or to SPS families only?

    Excellent!  Doesn’t appear that you have to have a student in SPS either as SVN is listed for drive through clinic options on the KC Public Health website.

    Are these open to everyone, or do you have to have a student enrolled in school?

      The linked page says “students, staff, and families.” I don’t know how rigidly they screen.

    The registration doesn’t ask for schoolinfo. They bill your insurance if you have it. We saw groups without children getting their shots no problem. So easy!

    Yes, anyone can use the drive up flu shot service, but you must have an appointment. Click on the BLUE BOX labeled “Sign up for a “drive-through” flu shot”.  The nurses were located outside the school, protected by a gazebo/tarp. There were some chairs for walk-ins, but most people arrived in cars, which lined up in the parking lot near the gazebo.On the day I went, they did not offer the stronger flu vaccine for senior citizens, but they did have the Flucelvax Quadrivalent vaccine for younger folks. The Seattle Visiting Nurse Association was accepting insurance cards, and flu shots were free to the uninsured. Register family members using the same phone number for all participants. Wear short-sleeve clothing and a face mask during your appointment, get in line and remain in your vehicle unless otherwise instructed. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
