TULSA, OK – [February 7, 2018] – The Tulsa Health Department will host a free flu shot clinic on Saturday, February 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Woodland Hills Mall, 7021 S. Memorial Dr. The pop-up clinic will be located in the upper level of the mall across from Bath and Body Works.
“The high numbers of flu-associated hospitalizations and deaths across the state underscores the importance of prevention measures like the flu shot,” said THD Division Chief of Preventive Health Priscilla Haynes. “The flu vaccine can keep you from getting the flu, make the illness less severe if you do get it, and keep you from spreading the virus to family and other people.”
Health officials encourage everyone age six months and older to receive a flu shot. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu – including older people, very young children, pregnant women, and people with certain long-term health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications.
“We will provide free flu shots to everyone six months and older during Saturday’s pop-up clinic,” said Haynes. “It is not too late to protect yourself and receive a flu vaccine this season.”
In addition to getting your flu shot, the Tulsa Health Department reminds you to follow these prevention tips:
Frequent hand washing using soap and water, or alcohol-based products such as hand gels when hands are not visibly soiled.
Make “respiratory hygiene” a habit, including use of tissues to cover coughs and sneezes, then disposing of them and washing hands at once. When tissues are not readily available, use your sleeve, never your hands.
Stay home from work, school, and other public places if you are ill. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
The flu vaccine is still available on a walk-in basis Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the following Tulsa Health Department locations:
