Douglas County Medical Reserve Corps seeking help for drive-thru flu clinic

Just to clarify, the drive-through flu clinic opens to the public at 9 a.m. (not 8 a.m.) and will close when all 500 doses are given. Volunteers need to register with the health department in advance and would begin their shift at 8 a.m. This drive-through flu clinic is being conducted to test our community's public health emergency response plans, and funding is available this year to cover the cost of the 500 doses so there is no charge for getting the vaccination during the exercise.
