Genesee Health Plan set to host drive-thru vaccine event in Flint

FLINT, Michigan — To help keep Genesee County residents healthy and safe, Genesee Health Plan is setting up a free drive-thru vaccine clinic this week on Friday, Sept. 9 from 3 p.m to 6 p.m at its 2171 S. Linden Road location. 

During the health and wellness event, attendees will be able to drive through one of the service bays to receive a flu shot from the comfort of their vehicle. Genesee Health Plan will also have Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines on hand (1st, 2nd, and 3rd doses) along with the new COVID-19 boosters for ages 12 and up. 

Along with the vaccines, participants will also get to enjoy free ice cream, a clothing giveaway for adults and children, back-to-school giveaways, and a chance to win gifts and gas cards.

Newly added to the event is Naloxone (NARCAN) basic training provided by Genesee Community Health Center. The training will show how to identify an opioid overdose and safely administer the reversal drug. Free Naloxone training kits will be available.

The drive-thru vaccine clinic is supported by Genesee Health Plan, Genesee Community Health Center, Communication Access Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Health Alliance Plan (HAP), R.L. Jones Community Outreach Center, and Walgreens.

Masks or face coverings will be required for all attendees. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters will be available for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
