Final pop-up clinics of the year offer free flu shots, Covid-19 boosters 

vaccine clinicAdditional dates added to meet strong demand

– The Public Health Department is hosting four more pop-up vaccine clinics across San Luis Obispo County to help protect residents from influenza and COVID-19. These events were originally scheduled to end in mid-November but have been extended to accommodate strong interest from residents. These will be the last pop-up clinics for 2022.

“We’ve been thrilled with the strong turnout at our mobile clinics around SLO County and are happy to keep the momentum going with more opportunities to get vaccinated ahead of a possible winter surge of flu and COVID-19,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer.

Pop-up clinics offer extended hours and no appointments are needed—just walk in. There are no requirements related to residency, income, insurance, or immigration status. Medical professionals are always on-hand to answer questions. This year’s flu shot and the new, updated COVID-19 booster both appear to be a good match for the strains circulating right now.

Nov. 30 – Grover Beach Public Health Clinic:

  • Wednesday, November 30, 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
