TidalHealth’s Salisbury Drive-Thru Flu Clinic is returning for its 26th season on Friday at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium on Route 50 at Hobbs Road.

The clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Seasonal quadrivalent flu vaccinations will be administered to individuals 13 years of age or older (those 13-17 should bring a parent or legal guardian to sign consent).

A physician’s order is not necessary. Flu shots at the TidalHealth Salisbury Drive-Thru Clinic will be free. 

TidalHealth will not be providing any Covid-19 testing at this event. In accordance with safety precautions, all clinical and non-clinical staff working the Drive-Thru Flu Clinic will be in appropriate personal protective equipment.

Direct contact with participants will be limited.

TidalHealth is also asking participants to please wear protective masking in their vehicles when in contact with any staff members at the flu clinic. 

Flu vaccinations are encouraged for anyone over the age of 6 months, but especially for people over the age of 65, people with heart or lung disorders, immunosuppressant diseases or diabetes.

Participants are encouraged to wear a short-sleeved shirt that will provide easy access to the upper arm. The vaccine being administered is effective for everyone meeting the age restrictions.
