In an innovative push to safeguard the community’s health as the colder months approach, the Delaware Public Health District has announced a convenient way to stay protected against the seasonal flu and COVID-19 with a special drive-thru clinic event. The initiative aims to serve the residents of the Olentangy School District, bolstering defenses against the yearly flu season and the ongoing pandemic.

Drive-Thru for Health

Set for Thursday, November 9 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM, this event offers a seamless and efficient health service from the comfort of your vehicle. The drive-thru clinic, situated at Olentangy Liberty High School, symbolizes the district’s commitment to accessibility and innovation in public health.

No-Cost Vaccinations with Pre-Registration

Pre-registration is essential for those wishing to participate. The clinic operates strictly by appointment to ensure a smooth and swift experience. Residents are instructed to secure their spot by scanning the provided QR code or visiting the Delaware Public Health District’s designated scheduling page at forms.delawarehealth.org/Forms/clinicpublic. The use of the code CLINIC2023 is necessary when booking the appointment.

Essential Details for a Hassle-Free Visit

On the day of the clinic, attendees must present identification and insurance cards, although it is stressed that vaccinations will be available at no cost to uninsured individuals. This emphasizes the district’s policy of not letting financial barriers impede access to vital health services.

This event exemplifies a proactive approach to community wellness, encouraging the public to take preventive measures seriously. As the weather turns, the combined flu and COVID-19 vaccinations are a strategic step to mitigate potential health system strains and keep the community safe.

Preparing for the Clinic

For the full details and preparation instructions, individuals are directed to visit the Delaware Public Health District’s website. Participants are reminded to complete the necessary form submission and await email confirmation to finalize their appointment for the clinic.

The Delaware Public Health District’s initiative is a clarion call for the community to rally together in the fight against flu and COVID-19. By leveraging drive-thru convenience and strategic scheduling, the district underscores its dedication to the health and well-being of its residents.
