MORONGO BASIN – Thanks to Walgreen’s in Yucca Valley sponsoring free Flu Shot Clinics in Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms some basin residents are ready for the upcoming flu season.
Clinics were held on Sept. 26 and 27 in Yucca Valley where 58 seniors and community members received their free immunizations in an event hosted by Reach Out Morongo Basin and the Town of Yucca Valley at the Yucca Valley Senior Center.
And on Sept. 28 an additional 34 seniors and community members were immunized at the Twentynine Palms Senior Center in a clinic hosted by Reach Out Morongo Basin and the City of Twentynine Palms.
“Recent news from the CDC stated that 80,000 individuals died from influenza last year in the United States, the most in over four decades” said Robin Schlosser, executive director for Reach Out Morongo Basin who coordinated the free clinics. “Seniors, children and people with health issues are particularly at risk and we are very grateful to Walgreen’s and store manager Thomas Curran for their sponsorship of these clinics annually to help protect the health of our community.”
In its fifth year of clinics with Reach Out Morongo Basin, Walgreens has provided over 500 free immunizations to the Morongo Basin community. For more information on upcoming clinics please call Reach Out Morongo Basin at 760-361-1410.
