Mega Doctor NEWS

Edinburg, TX — The DHR Health Urgent Care facility in Mission, Texas will be hosting a Drive-Thru Flu Shot event on Saturday, December 19, 2020, from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at 2121 E. Griffin Parkway, Suite 16.  DHR Health Urgent Care is dedicated to the health needs of families in the Rio Grande Valley and encourages those who have not received a flu vaccine to attend the event.

According to the CDC, it is likely that flu viruses and the virus that causes COVID-19 will both be spreading this season, meaning getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever.  Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses and caused by different viruses. COVID-19 is caused by infection with a new coronavirus (called SARS-CoV-2) and flu is caused by infection with influenza viruses. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis according to CDC.

The Drive-Thru event will allow the community to receive their flu shots without leaving their vehicle.  Masks will still be required, and safety precautions will be in place to promote a safe and healthy environment for everyone.  FREE flu vaccines will be available for those with insurance and those without insurance will only need to pay a small fee of $20. All ages are welcome, and the event is set to feature Dr. Ted E. Bear, entertainment, treats, and much more.
