Free flu vaccine clinic at Tukwila

Public Health – Seattle & King County offers free flu vaccinations for adults and children on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave. S.

Health experts recommend that everyone over 6 months of age get the flu vaccine to protect their health and the people around them. The flu can cause significant lost time from work and school, as well as the expense of doctor visits. In some instances, it can also cause hospitalization and even death.

The flu clinic is an excellent opportunity for people who do not have health insurance to get a free flu vaccination.

In addition to providing free flu vaccines, the clinic will serve as a preparedness exercise for Public Health to practice its ability to provide vaccinations to a large number of people in a short amount of time. More than 1,000 doses of vaccine will be available.
