[ARCHIVED] BBPH Conducting Drive-Through Flu Clinics on October 1

Staying healthy is more important than ever and one way to protect you, your family, and community is to get a flu shot. The flu shot is recommended for everyone that is 6 months of age and older.


Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health (BBPH) will be conducting drive-through Flu Clinics at the Bismarck Event Center on Thursday, October 1. The events will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.


Individuals wanting to be tested at these events must enter Parking Lot D, (the lot south of the Bismarck Event Center, across Bowen Avenue) from Seventh Street. The flu clinics will then be conducted inside the Bismarck Event Center.


Other ways to prevent the spread of influenza include avoiding close contact with sick people, staying at home when you are sick or have a sick child, covering your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, taking antiviral medication that is prescribed by your doctor, washing your hands often with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub, avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and cleaning/disinfecting objects that may be contaminated with germs like influenza. In addition, it is important to wear a mask when coming in to close contact with others to prevent other infections like COVID-19.
