Carson City disaster test offers drive-thru flu shots
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Carson City health officials are offering a drive-thru flu clinic Saturday as part of an effort to practice their emergency response plan.
The event offering $20 flu shots in the Carson City DMV parking lot from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday is open to everyone.
The city’s Health and Human Services Department is working in conjunction with first-responders, emergency management, public works and the sheriff’s office to test the city’s capability to distribute medication during a disaster.
Sponsors say no one will be turned away for inability to pay. The cost can be billed to Medicaid, Medicare and most private insurances.
