Medication Management Clinic Offers Free Flu Shots and Health Screenings

The Medication Management Clinic of Alamance Regional Medical Center, 1624 Memorial Dr., Burlington, will offer free flu shots to the first 100 people, Wednesday, Oct 1.  Shots will be given 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. or until the vaccine runs out. In addition, the clinic will provide free screenings for HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and syphilis 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  Those who receive screenings will also receive a $5 Wal-Mart gift card.

“Getting a flu shot is one of the best steps a person can take this time of year to protect their health,” says Medication Management Clinic Care Manager Betty Kluttz. “The shots and our free screenings are ways that we care for our communities.”

The clinic at is one of more than 80 free clinics taking part in a statewide open house sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Free Clinics (NCAFC) in partnership with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Foundation.

North Carolina’s free clinics provide medical and dental care, as well as prescription medications for low-income, uninsured people in more than 76 counties. During 2012, more than $200 million worth of health care services were delivered at no charge to uninsured patients totaling more than 216,000 visits.

“Free clinics are an essential part of each community’s fabric serving as a medical home for many people who would otherwise end up in the emergency room,” says NCAFC Interim Executive Director Lou Hill. “There are still many people across the state who do not qualify for or can afford health insurance and our clinics are there for them.”
