Vote, get vaccinated.
That’s the latest get-out-the-vaccine plan from the health department to ward off the seasonal flu. Although, it is not a new plan, given “vaccinate and vote” has been a tool of public health for more than a decade.
On Tuesday, the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts will be at some polling places offering flu shots to citizens.
Here’s where they plan to be:
- Patrick Henry High School: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Former Ruffner Middle School (3601 Ferncliff Ave. NW): 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Northside High School: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Salem Civic Center: 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Read Mountain Middle School: 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Craig County High School: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Covington VFW (710 East Dolly Ann Drive): 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If your polling place isn’t on the list, and you still want a shot, here are some other ways to get it through the health department.
