Annual drive-thru flu clinic is next week

The fifth annual Fort Stewart drive-thru flu clinic is 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 Fort Stewart’s main gate.

All military beneficiaries, federal employees, military retirees and their family members older than 2 years old are eligible to receive the vaccination free of charge.

No appointment is necessary. Flu vaccines will be administered by licensed providers from Winn Army Community Hospital.

The first Fort Stewart Drive-Thru Flu Clinic was held in 2008 as 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.
