The Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) will be holding the annual drive-thru flu vaccination clinic on October 20, 2017. KCPHD will hold the drive-thru clinic at the Kittitas County Fairgrounds, again this year, on 8th and Alder Street (1010 E 8th) in front of the Western Village. Anyone can get a flu shot between 7:00 am and 4:00 pm. Children 18 and under are free. Free adult vaccine is limited and will be first come, first serve. After the free adult vaccine supply is gone, adults will be charged $30.00 (cash or check).
