SPONSORED CONTENT – The DHR Health Urgent Care facility in Mission, Texas will be hosting a Drive Thru Flu Shot event on Saturday, December 19, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at 2121 E. Griffin Parkway, Suite 16. DHR Health Urgent Care is dedicated to the health needs of families in the Rio Grande Valley and encourages those who have not received a flu vaccine to attend the event.
According to the CDC, it is likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading this season, meaning getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever. Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses and caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis according to CDC.
The Drive Thru event will allow the community to receive their flu shots without leaving their vehicle. Masks will still be required, and safety precautions will be in place to promote a safe and healthy environment for everyone. FREE flu vaccines will be available for those with insurance and those without insurance will only need to pay a small fee of $20. All ages are welcome and the event is set to feature Dr. Ted E. Bear, entertainment, treats, and much more.
