Free Flu Shots
The Medication Management Clinic will again provide shots for those who might not otherwise receive one.
In North Carolina, 208 people died from the flu during the 2018-19 season. Many of those deaths could have been avoided with a simple flu shot. But there are people who don’t have health insurance or who otherwise can’t afford one. The Medication Management Clinic is again partnering with Walgreens to provide free flu vaccinations to 100 people.
The shots are being provided on a first-come basis. The shots will be available starting at 2 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, at the Medication Management Clinic. The clinic is located at 1225 Huffman Mill Road, Suite 102 in Burlington.
“Getting a flu shot is one of the easiest steps a person can take to prevent illness,” says Betty J. Kluttz, care manager and eligibility coordinator, Medication Management Clinic. “And of course, we are very grateful to Walgreens for again joining us in caring for our community.”
This marks the fifth year that Walgreens has been part of this flu-shot clinic.
The Medication Management Clinic is one of only a handful of clinics across the state that provides free prescription medications to the uninsured. It is an essential part of the medical safety net for many people who would otherwise end up in an emergency room for care.
