With the flu season upon us, county health departments throughout southwest Oklahoma will set up drive-thru clinics the first week of October to offer flu and COVID vaccines. The newly authorized bivalent COVID vaccine will be available at the drive-thru clinics and are also available on a walk-in basis at the county health departments in southwest Oklahoma.
Drive-thru vaccine clinics will be held at the following locations in southwest Oklahoma:
Tuesday, October 4 in Lawton from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Great Plains Coliseum, 920 S.W. Sheridan Rd.
No appointment is necessary to attend the drive-thru clinic. There is no out-of-pocket expense for the vaccines, but residents are asked to bring their I.D. and insurance card. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present.
If you are receiving a booster dose, please bring your vaccination card with you. Influenza vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines can be given at the same time. Anyone who cannot attend the drive-thru event is encouraged to call their local county health department to determine their best option to access the vaccination.
