Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever that we protect ourselves and our loved ones from the flu. Northeast Georgia Physicians Group (NGPG) is hosting a series of flu shot drive-thru events to make it easy for everyone to get their vaccination:

“The flu vaccine is the most effective way to prevent the flu.” says Dr. Supriya Mannepalli, an infectious disease expert with NGPG. “It’s also the best way to make sure you stay well and won’t need hospitalization for flu. We have already seen cases of the flu in our community, and we advise getting the flu shot before the end of October. Those with egg allergy can also receive the flu vaccine. We absolutely want you to remain healthy and productive in your community.”

Anyone 6 months to 64 years of age can receive a flu shot at the drive-thru events. Please be sure to bring a valid ID and insurance card. Flu shots for uninsured patients are $25.
