ELYRIA, Ohio — Next month, Lorain County Public Health will host four drive-thru and walk-in clinics where residents can go to get a free flu shot.

“Getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community from flu,” said LCPH Health Commissioner David Covell. “Healthy adults can get very sick from the flu, just like from COVID-19. Both are most dangerous for older adults, smokers or anyone with a chronic condition like asthma, diabetes or heart disease.”

The flu shots are paid for through CARES Act funding, according to health officials.

The events will take place on Nov. 2 and Nov. 7. Event details are as follows:

Drive-thru flu shot clinics for adults ages 16 years and older

  • Monday, Nov. 2, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Oberlin Fire Department, 430 S. Main St. in Oberlin.
  • Saturday, Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Elyria Fire Department Station No. 2, 330 E. Broad St. in Elyria.

Walk-in flu shot clinics for families with children ages 6 months through 15 years

  • Monday, Nov. 2, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Lorain County Fairgrounds, 23000 Fairgrounds Road in Wellington
  • Saturday, Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lorain County Community College in the Ewing Activities Center, 1005 Abbe Road N. in Elyria

You will need to bring a photo ID with you. Plan on wearing a mask and a short-sleeved shirt. Anyone who is feeling ill should plan on staying home.
