Get Your Flu Shot

“Vaccination helps you, your family and our entire community stay healthy,” says infection control expert Terry Burger, RN, with Lehigh Valley Health Network.

The health network’s free drive-through flu clinics at Allentown’s Dorney Park and Coca Cola Park, Nov. 9-10, make vaccination fast and easy.

LVHN distributed 11,208 free flu shots at Dorney and Coca-Cola parks last year.
