TUCSON, Ariz. — A free flu shot clinic will be available to Pima County residents, whether or not they have insurance.

The Pima County Health Department is offering the shots in partnership with Passport Health and Dr. Art Mollen.

The clinic will open Sept. 21 at 6383 E. 22nd Street, Suite 131. The clinic will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“With the COVID-19 pandemic still very actively spreading in Pima County, it’s crucial to get a flu shot before flu starts circulating widely,” said Crystal Rambaud, RN, Health Department Vaccine Preventable Disease Program Manager, in a statement. “As healthcare workers are doing so much to help people recover from COVID-19, we should do everything we can to help prevent further strain on the health care system.”

“Anybody over the age of 4 can get a free flu shot at this clinic, but we really want to see those most at risk of complications from the flu, especially elderly people, low-income people, and those who do not currently have health insurance,” Rambaud said. “With COVID-19 potentially spiking again in the fall, we want everyone to get their flu shot, so the clinic will not turn anybody away.”
