3rd Annual Drive Thru Vaccine Clinic

Drive Thru Clinic 2022 small
POCATELLO - October 10, 2023
The Idaho Immunization Coalition is partnering with the Idaho State University L. S. Skaggs College of Pharmacy and Southeastern Idaho Public Health to host an upcoming drive-through flu vaccine clinic, to help the community prepare for the fall and winter seasons.
The clinic will be Saturday, October 14 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the parking lot of the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center in Pocatello. Anyone is welcome to attend. Vaccines will be available at no cost, regardless of income and insurance status, but insurance will be billed when applicable. ISU pharmacy students and bi-lingual medical experts will be on hand to distribute the vaccines, answer immunization questions, and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience from the comfort of your vehicle. ISU President Kevin Satterlee and Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad will be first in line to receive their flu shots and COVID boosters, and encourage everyone to join them in receiving these important immunizations this year.

“As the fall quickly approaches and we start to re-enter our school-year routines, it is time again to prioritize our health. The IIC and our wonderful partners are proud to offer a one-stop shop for you and your family to get your seasonal vaccines,” said the executive director of the Idaho Immunization Coalition, Karen Sharpnack. “This drive-thru clinic will be fast and efficient, making it an easy way to get the protection you need. Anyone and everyone are welcome!” 

The flu vaccine will be available for anyone six months through adults, and all adults who receive the flu vaccine will receive a $25 gift card, while supplies last. Please wear a short-sleeved or loose-fitting shirt and bring your vaccine card if you plan to be immunized. 

“This is a great opportunity for our pharmacy students to get hands-on experience and provide no cost vaccines to all members of our community,” said Dr. Kevin Cleveland, associate professor at Idaho State University College of Pharmacy. “At ISU, our goal is to educate our future pharmacists with best practices and also cultivate compassion for the communities they will be serving. We hope to see a line through the parking lot this Saturday as we all work together to slow the spread of disease during this cold and flu season.”
