FARMINGTON — The San Juan Regional Medical Center is offering free vaccinations during clinics in October and November at five locations as part of its Fight the Flu campaign, according to a press release.

The clinics are available for anyone 18 years old or older. Vaccines will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis until supplies run out, and there will be a drive-through option.

This drive-through option will be at the medical center’s north visitors parking lot. Those going through the drive through should wear short-sleeve shirts and be ready for the vaccine by the time the car reaches the nurse.

The clinics will be held at the following locations:

  • The San Juan Regional Medical Center drive-through clinic: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 24 at the corner of Maple Street and Schwartz Avenue in Farmington.
  • Bloomfield Senior Center: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Oct. 27 at 124 Ash Ave. in Bloomfield.

  • San Juan Health Partners: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 5 at the medical office building, 407 S. Schwartz Ave.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 6 months old or older receive the flu vaccine yearly. Officials say it is especially important for high-risk groups such as children, senior citizens, pregnant women or people who have chronic diseases, according to the press release.
