Essentia Health Offers Spooktacular Flu Event

Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes is hosting a Spooktacular Flu Event for the entire family on Saturday, October 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Essentia Health St. Mary’s-Detroit Lakes Clinic, located at 1027 Washington Avenue in Detroit Lakes.

Grab your little ghouls and goblins for a scary good time strolling down Monster Main Street with trick or treating, games and prizes, face painting, a fire truck, an ambulance, a patrol car and flu shots for the entire family.

This event is open to everyone and you don’t need to be an Essentia patient to receive a flu shot. Flu shots will be available for people of all ages.

Be sure to wear your costumes!

The flu vaccine is recommended for people six months and older, including people with compromised immune systems and chronic medical conditions.

Flu vaccinations are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance.
