Ft. Stewart to hold drive-thru flu clinic

Posted: Updated:

Fort Stewart's annual drive-thru vaccination clinic will kick off Wednesday. 

The 2-day event will be held Oct. 16 and Oct. 17 at the Winn Army Community Hospital overflow parking lot from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. That's located at the corner of 6th Street and Harmon Ave. on Fort Stewart.

All military beneficiaries, federal employees, military retirees and their family members over the age of two years old can receive the vaccination free of charge.

The flu vaccines will be administered by licensed providers from Winn Army Community Hospital and no appointments are necessary.

The first Fort Stewart Drive-Thru Clinic was held in 2008 as a joint emergency preparedness exercise between the installation and Liberty County. The goal was to prepare for a pandemic in which a mass vaccine distribution would be needed. Due to its success, the Drive-Thru Flu Clinic is now an annual event held each fall.
