Bon Secours Offering Free Flu Vaccines to the Greenville Community with 4 Flu Clinics in October

With the goal of making flu shots accessible throughout the community, Bon Secours is hosting a series of flu vaccine clinics over the next few weeks for adults, ages 18 to 64. 

Flu vaccines have been shown to prevents millions of illness and flu-related doctor’s visits each year. Health care providers say it may be even more crucial this year.

“As we face another surge of the COVID-19 virus, our immune systems are challenged to the max. This Fall, we urge our community members to get vaccinated - protect yourself, your loved ones, and all others you may come in contact with. Please come out and get vaccinated!” urged Irene Pena, a registered nurse working with the Bon Secours Community Wellness Outreach program.

The upcoming flu clinics will be held:

Saturday, October 2nd

2 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

St. Sebastian Church

2300 Old Buncombe Road

Greenville, SC 29609

Wednesday, October 6th

9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Triune Mercy Center

Greenville, SC 29609

Sunday, October 3rd

Greenville, SC 29609

Friday, October 8th

The flu vaccine will be offered for free on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last. 

“Unfortunately, those who are unvaccinated and dealing with chronic conditions are at a higher risk of ending up in the hospital if they get infected with the flu, especially when those chronic conditions are uncontrolled. As a nurse working in the community, I often come across people who are being admitted to the hospital with serious and, in some cases, life-threatening complications which could have been prevented with the flu vaccination,” said Pena.

High-dose vaccines for those over the age of 65 and the egg-free version of the vaccine will not be available at these clinics.

All participants will be required to wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols. Masks will be provided on site for anyone who does not have one.
