The fifth annual Fort Stewart Drive-Thru Flu Clinic is scheduled for 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Oct. 24-25 in the SFC Paul R. Smith Army Education Center parking lot at 100 Knowledge Drive, just outside the post's main gate.
All military beneficiaries, federal employees, military retirees and their family members over the age of 2 years old are eligible to receive the vaccination free. No appointment is necessary. Flu vaccines will be administered by licensed providers from Winn Army Community Hospital.
The first Fort Stewart drive-through clinic in 2008 was a joint emergency preparedness exercise between the installation and Liberty County. The goal was to prepare for a pandemic in which a mass vaccine distribution would be needed.
Due to its success, the clinic is now an annual event held each fall.
