Lehigh Valley Health Network to host Flu Drive at Coca-Cola Park
The flu drive will be held on Sunday, November 8 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Allentown, Pennsylvania (30 October 2020) – Lehigh Valley Health Network will be hosting a flu drive at Coca-Cola Park on Sunday, November 8 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. This will be the 23rd straight year Lehigh Valley Health Network will administer free seasonal flu vaccinations for adults and children. For the past 22 years, 180,000 free flu shots have been administered by LVHN’s community influenza vaccination campaign.
In order for guests to receive their free flu vaccine, they must complete and print a consent form for each person being vaccinated and review the vaccine information sheet. This information can be found by going to lvhn.org/flu shot or requested by calling 888-402-LVHN (5846). In addition, Lehigh Valley Health Network is asking those who are requesting to receive a flu shot to wear loose-fitting clothing for the shot to be administered in the arm, and the leg of children under two years old.
In conjunction with the flu drive, Lehigh Valley Health Network is partnering with food banks and shelters throughout the Lehigh Valley to accept donations of unexpired, non-perishable food items during each of the drive-thru sessions. Over the last 22 years, more than 140,000 pounds of food have been collected for food banks throughout the Lehigh Valley. Food donations are optional and not required to receive a shot. Lehigh Valley Health Network is urging those to check the expiration date and only bring items that have not expired and are non-perishable. In addition, other items such as diapers, personal hygiene products, coffee pods and wipes will be accepted.
