Richland Library offers free flu shots

1 min read

With the 2020-2021 flu season underway, Richland Library is once again partnering with Walgreens to host free flu shot clinics at several of our locations.

They’re taking place from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on the following dates:

• Friday, November 13 at Richland Library Eastover

• Sunday, November 15 at Richland Library Southeast

• Friday, November 20 at Richland Library St. Andrews

• Sunday, November 29 at Richland Library Main

Registration is not required. Flu shots are available on a first-come, first-

served basis and open to anyone – 12 years and older. A parent or guardian must accompany children, ages 12 to 17.

To ensure the safety of customers and staff, the flu shot clinics are occurring outside (weather permitting) and away from the library’s other outdoor services. For more on what to expect, visit us online or call 803-799-9084.

In addition to protecting yourself, your family and your community, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says getting a flu shot can also alleviate stress on our healthcare systems during the pandemic. Last year, estimates show almost 40 million people became ill, 400,000 people were hospitalized and 22,000 people died with influenza.
