Successful Turnout for This Year’s Free Flu Vaccination Drive-Through Clinic in Silver City
Silver City, NM (September 28, 2016) Multiple Hidalgo Medical Services (HMS) providers, mid-level providers, and registered nurses worked together to administer 477 flu vaccinations to community members during this year’s free, drive-through clinic. The clinic was held this past Saturday at the HMS Silver City Community Health Center from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
“In an effort to provide more accessible influenza immunizations to our community, the HMS Medical Services team coordinated this free flu vaccination clinic with great success,” stated Darrick Nelson, HMS Chief Medical Officer and Family Medicine Residency Program Director. “The flu vaccine is your best defense against seasonal flu, as it can help to reduce flu illnesses and prevent flu-related hospitalizations,” added Nelson.
This Saturday, October 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon), HMS will once again provide this community outreach and free flu vaccines at the HMS Lordsburg Clinic located at 530 E. DeMoss Street. HMS has distributed free flu vaccines to the residents of southwestern New Mexico for over 10 years.
