Pocatello Fire Dept., Southeastern Idaho Public Health Partner for Free Flu Shot Clinic

The Pocatello Fire Department and Southeastern Idaho Public Health are teaming up in the fight against the flu.

Thursday, February 22, from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Senior Activity Center, 427 N. 6th Avenue, the two groups will provide free flu shots on a first come, first served basis to the public. Recently, the Pocatello Fire Department received a $1,000 donation from Albertsons and firefighters made the decision to inject the money back into the community. SIPH will be providing the shots at no charge after the department’s $1,000 is exhausted.

“As Emergency Medical Service providers, we have seen how the flu has impacted our community and want to do something to help,” said Kim Stouse, Community Education/Relations Specialist with the Pocatello Fire Department.

“The flu is widespread across Idaho and will likely last until spring,” said Tracy McCulloch, Community Health Director with SIPH. “To protect you and your family from the flu, your best defense is the flu shot.”

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. I enjoy helping people find ways to share their voice. I have found ways to do this through the written word, articles and various media outlets. Area-Info.net is an avenue to help everyone have a voice who wants a voice. If you have questions about how you can have your voice heard, I would be happy to schedule a time to consult with you.
