PITTSFIELD, Maine —  The Sebasticook Valley Hospital Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  on Saturday, Oct. 12, at Somerset Plaza in Pittsfield. Adults can receive their seasonal flu shots from the warmth and comfort of their vehicles.

“This is an easy way to get a flu shot,” commented Terri Vieira, SVH President/CEO, in a press release. “SVH wants to improve access to seasonal flu shots for people to fit into their busy lives, and I’ve very pleased with the public response that this event has had whenever we’ve offered this in the community.”

Flu shots will be provided to adults 18 years and older for $22 per shot. SVH will encourage drivers and passengers to wait in their vehicles for at least 15 minutes after the shot to ensure no adverse reaction to the immunization.
