Free flu vaccine drive-thru event set for Baptist-DeSoto 

Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto and DeSoto Community Health Center will offer free influenza vaccines to community members age 18 and older in the hospital’s north parking lot at 7601 Southcrest Pkwy. in Southaven, on Thursday, Oct. 5, from 4 to 6 p.m.

“We are excited to offer free flu vaccines to our community again this year,” said Brian Hogan, CEO and administrator of Baptist-DeSoto. “Getting vaccinated is the best protection against the flu and has also been proven to help reduce symptoms if someone does get the flu after being vaccinated. This helps reduce the likelihood of those infected needing hospitalization, which benefits our entire community.”

No appointments are necessary, and attendees can arrive as early as 3:30 p.m. for the drive-thru line, which will start on the north side of the hospital.
