Events

Riverside Health system is proud to be hosting several free vaccination events throughout the region in order to further promote both flu and COVID-19 vaccination. At these clinics, residents will be able to receive the flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time, with one in each arm. The clinics will feature free drive-thru and walk-up vaccinations for those ages 5 and older. To receive second or third Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines, you must show proof of prior vaccination. Additionally, under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), COVID-19 booster shots are currently available to those 65 and older and those at risk of severe illness, including healthcare workers. Those who are eligible may be administered a single Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine booster dose at least six months after the first two doses to provide additional immunity with proof of prior vaccination. As soon as Riverside has more information regarding approval of COVID-19 booster shots for other individuals, we will provide an update. These vaccination events will only offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Please review our guidelines below before you attend. While supplies last. Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines only. No testing will be done on site.

Guidelines

In light of COVID-19, masking will be required at all times at the clinic.

Temperature checks and additional safety screenings will be required prior to any patient receiving a flu shot.

Patients must confirm they have none of the following symptoms: Fever (100.4+), new loss of taste or smell, cough, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, headache, congestion or runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

If you are sick or show any symptoms of illness, please do not come for vaccination; seek care from your doctor.

In addition, patients who are under evaluation for COVID-19, waiting on viral test result, diagnosed with COVID-19 and not yet cleared to discontinue isolation, or have had prolonged contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 should also contact their physician before getting the flu vaccination.
