Drive-through flu shots Nov. 3, 4

Lehigh Valley Health Network will administer free seasonal flu vaccinations for adults and children six months and older during two community sessions in November. Shots will be all drive-through at Dorney Park 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 3 and at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 4 each day.

Once again this year LVHN is partnering with area food banks and shelters including the Allentown Area Ecumenical Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank, Allentown Rescue Mission and the AIDS Activities Office food pantry to accept donations of non-perishable food items that have not expired during each of the drive-through sessions. Food donations are optional and not required to receive a shot.

Those planning to receive a shot are urged to register online in advance. Hourly slots are available for both sessions. Reservation times are estimates and not guaranteed. A vaccine information statement, consent form, link to online registration and maps of both locations are available at lvhn.org by clicking on the box "Programs and Events/Events."

Those planning to receive a flu shot during LVHN's November drive-through vaccinations are asked to abide by the following requests:

·Access a vaccine information sheet and consent form for each person to be vaccinated at lvhn.org, or request forms by calling 610-402-CARE.

·Complete the consent form and bring it with you when you get vaccinated.

·Dress appropriately loose-fitting clothing for the shot to be administered in the arm of an adult and the leg of children less than two years old.

·No pets should be in the vehicle.
