ANNOUNCEMENT: Starting on December 1st, the DailyTrib.com subscription rates will change. The new renewal rate will be $20 for the yearly membership and $4 for the monthly membership. If you currently have a membership, you will be charged the new rate upon renewal.
Sign up now for a community drive-through flu shot clinic on Oct. 7 at the Marble Falls Fire Station, 700 Avenue N. Vaccinations will be given from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. You don’t even have to get out of the car!
“It’s great for families,” said Swati Soni-Marchant of H-E-B, which is hosting the event along with the city of Marble Falls, the Highland Lakes Crisis Network, and the Highland Lakes Service League. “The kids loved it because they watch their moms and dads get the shot, and they are not as afraid. They are comfortable in their own environment.”
Elderly patients also prefer the ease of drive-through clinics over going into a pharmacy or doctor’s office.
Organizers held a drive-through clinic in 2022.
“When we tried it last year, it was a success,” Soni-Marchant said. “We want to grow it and build it and make it an annual event.”
You can register for the clinic three ways: online, by phone, or by scanning a QR code, which takes you here. The website and phone number will be available on Sunday, Sept. 24.
Vaccinations will be given to ages 3 and older. Most major insurance plans are accepted. Everyone should bring a photo ID as well as all insurance cards. Cost for those without insurance, ages 3-64, is $29. Only cash or checks will be accepted. No credit cards.
