FLINT – Genesee Health Plan (GHP) announced today it will host its fourth annual Genesee Health Plan Drive-Thru Immunization event on Friday, Oct. 13 from 3-6 p.m. The event will take place at Genesee Health Plan’s office located at 2171 S. Linden Road, Flint.
“Our Drive-Thru Immunization event is a fast, convenient and innovative way for Genesee County residents to protect themselves and their families during the winter months. Attendees can drive through one of our service bays, roll down their window and roll up their sleeve to conveniently receive their flu shot,” said GHP President and CEO Jim Milanowski. “This event is one of many ways that GHP provides the Genesee County Community with life-saving health services, including flu shots and healthcare resources.”
Attendees can drive through one of GHP’s two drive-in service bays or go inside GHP’s office for their flu shots. New this year, GHP will have blood pressure screenings and Body Mass Index (BMI) screenings as well as Tdap, Shingles and Pneumonia vaccines available inside GHP’s office. Additionally, information on health resources and materials will be provided. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions about and sign up for health care coverage under the Genesee Health Plan, Healthy Michigan Plan, Medicaid or special health coverage for those impacted by the water crisis, depending on eligibility.
If residents are unable to attend, they can obtain a flu vaccination from their physician, or at several health centers and pharmacies throughout Genesee County. Vaccinations are covered by the Genesee Health Plan, Healthy Michigan and the Michigan Health Insurance Marketplace (ACA).
The Genesee County Drive-Thru Immunization event is a project of the Genesee County Health Department, Genesee Health Plan and Walgreens. For more information, visit www.geneseehealthplan.org or call 844.232.7740.
