October 13, 2015, Elko, NV-
October third was a warm sunny morning as the team from Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital gathered to prepare for the FREE Drive-by Flu Shot clinic.

The event began at 9am and continued until 12pm and more than 20 Registered Nurses and professionals from NNRH gave out over 350 flu shots to participants that day.

“Making communities healthier is the mission that we strive to achieve every day,” said Rick Palagi, CEO, “offering the free drive-by flu shot clinic was our pleasure and we are thrilled that we have the ability to help fulfill a community need by offering these flu shots!”

Even though, October has been unseasonably warm, the cold and flu season is upon us and NNRH encourages the community to receive flu shots annually to help prevent the spread of the illness.
