Health experts and Governon Gretchen Whitmer have promoted flu shots across Michigan as a way to both limit the spread of the flu and avoid stressing the healthcare system, which is already grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic. A drive-thru flu clinic is planned for later this month.

ESCANABA — Public Health, Delta & Menominee Counties will be holding its annual community drive-thru flu shot clinic on Saturday, Sept. 26. The clinic will be held in the Public Health parking lot at 2920 College Ave., Escanaba, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost for the flu shot is $30.

Also available this year is high dose flu vaccine for $50. Medicare, Medicaid, Healthy Michigan and most private insurance can be billed.

Public Health continues to recognize the need to offer a drive-thru service to those who have difficulty walking. Limited mobility is not a requirement to attend the drive-thru clinic, and all individuals are welcome to attend.

No appointments are necessary, and people are asked to come during the designated time period according to the first letter of their last name:
