Getting a flu shot has never been more convenient thanks to drive-through availability that also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. Parkland has 25,000 flu vaccine doses available for the community and is administering free flu shots for the general public who do not have insurance or a funding source at the two Dallas drive-through COVID-19 test sites, at the Ellis Davis Field House, 9191 South Polk St., Dallas 75232 and the Eastfield College Campus test site, 3737 Motley Drive, Mesquite 75150. Both sites are open Mondays-Saturdays, 7:30 am-4 pm.
In addition, drive-through flu vaccine clinics will be held at Parkland COPCs this fall. The first of these events is scheduled Friday, October 9 from 9 am-3 pm at the Southeast Dallas Health Center, 9202 Elam Rd., Dallas 75217 and another will be held on October 17 from 9 am-3 pm at the deHaro-Saldivar Health Center, 1400 N.
