Flu shots offered Monday at Grand Junction clinic
Any adult in need of a flu shot can receive one between 4 and 6 p.m. Monday at the Good Samaritan Clinic, 2470 Patterson Road.
“Our services are primarily for people who don’t have insurance, but we’re obviously not going to turn anybody away,” said director Allison Blevins.
Blevins said the agency has received about 90 doses. The vaccinations are available on a walk-in basis.
The nonprofit Good Samaritan Clinic operates on a donation basis. Health care professionals from around the Grand Valley volunteer their time to work at the clinic. A record number of 58 patients showed for last five-hour clinic, Blevins said.
The Good Samaritan Clinic started to help mostly the underserved homeless population. Its operations have expanded to offer health care to other underserved populations.
“The big message that I want to get out is we are there for the middle class,” Blevins said. “Even teachers with high deductibles often can’t afford to get health care. We’re there for everyone. It’s not just for homeless people.”
The Good Samaritan Clinic will offer a medical clinic from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 23. Starting in March, it will run clinics twice a month. Clinics will be offered from 3 to 6 p.m. March 11 and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 23.
