WEST VALLEY CITY — A drive-thru flu shot clinic is underway in West Valley City.

It began at 10:00 a.m. Saturday and will be open until 2:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the Maverik Center at 3200 South Decker Lake Drive.

The event, sponsored by Smith’s, is a good option for high-risk individuals who may choose not to get their vaccine inside a store or healthcare clinic. The event will offer the flu vaccine only. Smith’s requests that participants make an appointment and complete registration online before their visit. You can make an appointment here. Enter the zip code 84119.

Drive-ups without appointments are also welcome while supplies last. Many insurance companies cover the flu shot with no co-pay.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, healthcare experts say it is more important than ever to receive a flu shot.
