Flu Shootout a Win-Win-Win

After a successful pilot year, TriCounty Health Department is hosting the flu shootout again this fall, providing valuable training experience as well as an important service to the public. According to TriCounty Director Jordan Mathis, UBATC nursing students will help this year in order to hold a Roosevelt event as well. “This is a win-win for the health department and the UBATC nursing program,” says Mathis. “It helps them get practical clinical experience and they help us facilitate the event to serve the community.” The Flu Shootout is a drive up/walk up clinic that also serves as health department practice for any emergency situation where mass vaccinations need dispensing. The flu immunization clinic will be heldSeptember 24th from 10am to 2pm at UBATC in Roosevelt and TriCounty Health Department in Vernal.
