Already time for a flu shot? Drive on through

I know it’s hard to believe, but the fall is already upon us. As evidence, I submit that at least one person in our office has already been temporarily felled by flu.

So it was surprising, but perhaps not unforeseeable, to find that Snoqualmie Valley Hospital is already selling flu shots.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, an annual flu vaccine is the single best way to avoid catching influenza. And everyone I’ve ever met who gets one swears they save them the misery of a prolonged bout of flu.

Getting a flu shot probably doesn’t get much easier than this: The hospital’s Drive Thru Flu Shot event, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the SVH helipad, 9575 Ethan Wade Way, Snoqualmie.

Shots will be available for people age 12 and up.

The cost is $30, but the value might be your own good health this season.
