Flu Shots Available At Essentia Health Vaccination Clinic At Miller Hill
DULUTH, Minn. – Essentia Health is now offering a flu shot clinic at the Miller Hill Mall, to help accommodate the need for more people to be vaccinated.
Patient volumes for Essentia Health’s walk-in vaccination clinic at the mall have been a little slower than anticipated so far.
Health officials are expecting a surge to start soon.
The pandemic poses many health risks, so getting vaccinated for the flu is becoming a priority.
“This year in the midst of this coronavirus pandemic it has become more important or perhaps a heightened awareness of the opportunity,” said Wanda Gordon, director of nursing for ambulatory care at Essentia Health.
Essentia expects even bigger crowds of people to start coming into the clinic for flu shots.
The large space in the mall makes it easy for health care workers to socially distance everyone waiting for a vaccine.
With the expected high demand, many other flu shot clinics in the region are already reporting a shortage of the high-dose flu vaccine.
Fortunately, the Essentia clinic is not experiencing any type of shortage at this time.
If you are interested in getting your flu shot, you can just walk in at the Miller Hill mall vaccination clinic.
There are also many other health care providers and pharmacies in the northland where shots are available.
