Thousands of Coloradans could get free flu shots as part of a mass vaccination drill.
In one of the largest exercises of its kind in the country, health officials plan to vaccinate more than 20,000 people against the flu by noon Saturday at nearly 30 sites across the state.
The exercise is a test of how emergency workers would respond to a health pandemic. With many of the shots being given away free, organizers hope a rush of people arriving for shots will simulate a real–life public–health crisis.
Here on the western slope, you can't get them for free. But flu shots will be available at the Delta Middle School. You can call the Delta County Health Department for the exact times.
That number is 874–2165.
