MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)- Flu season is almost here, and local health experts say you shouldn’t delay getting your flu shot. 

Saturday, Walgreens and Blue Cross hosted a drive-thru flu shot clinic. People could get vaccinated without leaving theirs car at the Southwind campus of Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church.

“The drive thru is unique. It’s very convenient for those that don’t want to go to the actual doctors office to get their flu shot,” said Adrian Winfrey, a Communicare Partner for West Tennessee.

“They can come here and stick their arm out of their car and receive their flu shot from Walgreens.”

Workers also collected old and unwanted pills to reduce the risk of medication misuse and abuse.
