The Southwest Utah Public Health Department (SWUPHD) will be holding its annual Flu Shoot-outs in Kane County starting in September. Residents can get a free flu shot while helping the SWUPHD and community partners practice their emergency pandemic response plans.
The Shootouts are held throughout the five-county district before flu season arrives. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends vaccination for everyone over 6 months of age in order to reduce the risk of influenza infection and serious complications.
Kane County residents receive flu shots at no cost and can participate in the event closest to them:
Big Water: September 11 (Tuesday, 2:30-3:30pm Utah time), Town Hall
Alton: September 13 (Thursday, 2-3pm), LDS Church
