San Antonio public health officials offering free drive-thru flu vaccines but appointments needed 

  • Facebook / San Antonio Metro Health
Local health officials are teaming up with H-E-B Pharmacy to provide free flu vaccines to San Antonio residents — whether or not they have insurance.

University Health System and H-E-B will host a drive-thru flu vaccination clinic at Freeman Coliseum on Saturday, September 26, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The free clinic will provide 2,500 flu shots on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments can be made through H-E-B Pharmacy.

In a video message released Tuesday, Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott said getting a flu shot this year is especially important since it can reduce stress on hospitals during the health crisis.

"I can tell you it is the best way to reduce your chances of contracting and spreading the flu," Abbott said. "So, protect yourself and loved ones this flu season and get a flu shot today."
