There’s never been a more important time to make sure you and the people you love are protected from disease. Especially as flu season approaches, keeping up to date on vaccinations is one of the best ways you can stay safe, healthy, and far from the hospital during the COVID pandemic. And now you can get vaccinated without having to step out of your car!

Special Events: drive-thru back-to-school and flu clinics at the ShoWare Center
School looks different this fall, but vaccines are still our best defense against life-threatening diseases like measles, whooping cough, and flu. And once we do return to in-person learning, kids will need all required vaccinations in order to attend. Join Public Health, SVNA, and the Kent School District and get your whole family protected!
