The Seattle Visiting Nurse Association (SVNA) and the City of Mountlake Terrace are partnering to offer free flu shots for uninsured residents on Thursday, Oct. 30 at the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion.
The shots will be available 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Recreation Pavilion, 5303 228th Street SW. Funding to support these “no-cost” flu shot clinics is being provided by the Verdant Health Commission program of Public Hospital District No. 2.
Seattle Visiting Nurse Association will provide a series of public immunization clinics to be held this fall at locations throughout South Snohomish County. Each clinic will offer uninsured and underinsured residents of Public Hospital District No. 2 the opportunity to receive a no-cost seasonal influenza (and where requested Tdap) immunization.

Individuals with insurance coverage are welcome at any of the scheduled clinics and SVNA will bill insurance plans directly with no out of pocket cost to the recipient. Between mid-September and November SVNA clinics will reach about 5,000-7,000 residents who would not otherwise be able to receive this important preventive care service.
The Verdant Health Commission serves nearly 240,000 people in the communities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, Woodway and portions of Bothell and unincorporated Snohomish County.
