Drive Through Flu Shot Clinic

Sunday, October 26th 2014 - 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
at YANKEE CANDLE HEADQUARTERS PARKING LOT
Yankee Candle Way

WHEN A DANGEROUS NEW FLU OR A MAJOR NATURAL DISASTER OCCURS, FOUR FRANKLIN COUNTY TOWNS WILL BE READY WITH A SWIFT AND PRACTICED RESPONSE.

THE SOUTH COUNTY TOWNS OF DEERFIELD, SUNDERLAND, WHATELY AND CONWAY WILL OFFER THE PUBLIC FREE FLU SHOTS AND FLUMIST IN A DRIVE-THRU CLINIC ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 26 FROM 10 AM TO 1 PM. THIS YEAR’S CLINIC WILL BE HELD IN THE YANKEE CANDLE HEADQUARTERS PARKING LOT IN DEERFIELD, YANKEE CANDLE WAY, WHERE ROUTES 5 & 10 AND 116 RUN PARALLEL.

THE FOUR TOWNS ARE IN THEIR NINTH YEAR OF DISPENSING FREE FLU VACCINE, THIS BEING YEAR FOUR OF THE DRIVE THROUGH CLINIC. “THE DRIVE THROUGH IS AN EXCELLENT REHEARSAL FOR A SEVERE MEDICAL EMERGENCY OR NATURAL DISASTER,” SAID DEERFIELD BOARD OF HEALTH MEMBER CAROLYN SHORES-NESS. “WHEN A MAJOR EMERGENCY HAPPENS, THIS VOLUNTEER TEAM WILL BE READY.”

LAST YEAR, 570 PEOPLE RECEIVED FREE INOCULATIONS OR FLUMIST WITHOUT EVER GETTING OUT OF THEIR CARS, EXPERIENCING AN AVERAGE TIME IN LINE OF ONLY FIVE MINUTES.

FLU CAUSES MORE THAN 30,000 DEATHS IN THE U.S. IN AN AVERAGE YEAR. HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS RECOMMEND THAT EVERYONE OVER THE AGE OF SIX MONTHS BE VACCINATED. PREGNANT WOMEN, THE ELDERLY, THE YOUNG AND THOSE WITH ASTHMA AND OTHER RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS ARE LIKELY TO BE ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO THE FLU.

THE ORGANIZED DRIVE THROUGH IMMUNIZATION IS ITSELF A PREVENTATIVE MEASURE, BECAUSE PEOPLE DO NOT STAND IN LINE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY WITH OTHERS WHO MAY ALREADY HAVE CONTRACTED THE FLU BUT HAVE NOT YET BEGUN TO SHOW SYMPTOMS.

TO SAVE TIME, THE PUBLIC CAN PRE-REGISTER BY DOWNLOADING THE FORM FROM THEIR TOWN WEBSITES AND BRINGING THE COMPLETED FORM TO THE CLINIC. PREREGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED BUT ENCOURAGED. FORMS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE ON SITE.

FIFTY OR SIXTY VOLUNTEERS WILL BE NEEDED TO BACK UP MEDICAL STAFF FOR THIS YEAR’S CLINIC. BOTH LICENSED MEDICAL AND NON-MEDICAL VOLUNTEERS WHO HAVE NOT HELPED OUT BEFORE WILL NEED TO ATTEND A BRIEF TRAINING SESSION IN DEERFIELD TOWN HALL ON OCTOBER 21 FROM 6 – 8 PM. TO VOLUNTEER, CONTACT ELIZABETH KUGLER, EDS OPERATIONS, AT 413-665-7286 OR lizmuda@comcast.net.
