Are you interested in receiving a flu shot and/or COVID-19 booster in the fall?

Survey

The Boca Grande Health Clinic is running a survey to identify interest in receiving a flu shot, or a COVID-19 booster shot (if these become available) at the Clinic.

“Last year’s drive-through flu clinic was a big success, and we hope to replicate it this coming flu season,” said Mark Driscoll, Boca Grande Health Clinic CEO. “Despite the many challenges of COVID-19, we were able to vaccinate more than 3,100 patients and members of the Island community. The Clinic stands ready to administer booster shots drive-through clinics should those become necessary and available.”

Responding to the two-question survey takes just a few minutes and your participation will help the Clinic with planning. Everyone on island, or who plans to be on island during the fall-winter months can complete the survey. No personal information is collected or recorded.

Please take the survey.
