No-cost, Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic Set for Geisinger CenterPoint The best defense against getting the flu is to get a flu shot, and this year it’s more important than ever to get one. To help make it easier to get your flu shot, Geisinger’s first community drive-thru flu shot clinic in northeastern Pennsylvania will take place Saturday, Sept. 26, and Sunday, Sept. 27, near Pittston. Drive-thru flu shots will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Geisinger CenterPoint, 300 Keystone Ave., Pittston, located just off of Interstate 81 in the CenterPoint Commerce and Trade Park. This drive-thru event is open to the public and is only for people older than 18. The flu shots are available at no cost and are being provided by Geisinger’s health and wellness team. There’s no need to preregister to get a flu shot. Remember to wear a mask and loose-fitting clothing that allows easy access to the upper arm. When arriving at a drive-thru vaccination site, follow all directional signage. You’ll need to fill out a short electronic form before receiving your flu shot. Remain inside your vehicle next to an open window. Staff will not enter vehicles to provide flu shots. An additional public drive-thru flu shot event is set for Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Southside Fire Station in Hazleton from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Distributed by Geisinger mobile health services, walk-up community flu shots will also be available Monday, Oct. 5, at the Greater Scranton YMCA from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to the drive-thru flu clinics, Geisinger primary care and pediatric offices offer flu shots during regular office hours, with many locations open until 7 p.m. Geisinger Pharmacy locations offer flu shots for patients, and those age 9 and older can get a flu shot at Geisinger Convenient Care locations any day of the week, with no appointment necessary.
