The Victoria Fire Department will host a free flu vaccine clinic from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 20 at Queen City Park.

The Victoria Fire Department has received a grant from the Texas Medical Association to provide 120 no-cost flu vaccines to local residents. The flu vaccines are free to all residents 6 months and older. No registration is required, and residents do not need specific qualifications to receive the vaccine.

Protection against the seasonal flu is an important part of Victoria’s COVID-19 response because of the danger that the region’s health care resources could be strained by responding to two outbreaks at once, said Victoria Fire Department Chief Tracy Fox.

If the fire department does not use all of its vaccines, additional clinics will be planned. 

For more information, contact the Victoria Fire Department at 361-485-3450.
