Anyone living near or far is welcome to drive by!”
The COVID-19 vaccine will be available to anyone 12 years and older and the flu vaccine for those between 2-64 years old. For those 65 and older, the high-dose enhanced flu shot will also be available. Please wear a short-sleeved shirt if you plan to be immunized.
“We are proud to participate in an endeavor of this magnitude to immunize in the state of Idaho.
