The UNM Health Sciences Center and UNM Hospitals are again hosting free public flu shot clinics this fall.

The popular UNM Health Sciences Center (HSC)  drive-thru flu shot clinics for immunization against the seasonal flu will be conducted again this year on Saturday, October 19 at the UNM Family Practice Center, 2400 Tucker NE, on the UNM north campus and October 26 at the Northeast Heights Clinic, 7801 Academy Rd NE.

“More than 200,000 deaths occur annually due to the flu and we know that vaccinations are one of the most effective ways to avoid acquiring  influenza.  The CDC recommends vaccinations for everyone over the age of six months.  It is particularly important for healthcare personnel to be vaccinated since they are in contact with vulnerable populations,” said Meghan Brett, M.D., UNM Hospitals Epidemiologist.

In addition to the drive through clinics, UNM Hospitals will host weekend flu shot clinics throughout the Albuquerque area. These vaccinations are free to everyone.
