The Orange County Heath Services Department is offering free drive-thru flu shots at Barnett Park on Colonial from Wednesday through Friday this week.

The shots will be available for Orange County residents on Oct. 14-16 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at Barnett Park (4801 W. Colonial Drive) each day.

No proof of insurance is required to get the vaccine, but you must be 12 years of age or older.

Before you head off to get your shot, health officials suggest you schedule an appointment in advance, just to be on the safe side.

It's easy to overlook other health concerns in the middle of a pandemic, but the CDC strongly recommends getting your flu vaccine, as this year's flu season has the potential to be a tough one.
