TREASURE VALLEY, Idaho — Drive-up flu vaccine clinics will be offered at three Saint Alphonsus locations in the Treasure Valley this year. Appointments can be made using the online scheduling tool on the Saint Alphonsus website.

“As we enter into flu season while we are in the midst of a pandemic, it’s imperative that people get their flu vaccines,” said Dr. Mark Nassir, President of Saint Alphonsus Medical Group. “The vaccine is an important part of preventing influenza and significantly improving immunity not just for individuals, but for our community as well.”

The clinics start on September 29 with the location on 12th Ave. South in Nampa opening for adults and children. On September 30, a pediatric flu clinic will open at the Boise campus, at a location between the Mulvaney and Liberty buildings, on Hartman Street. On October 1, the Ten Mile Clinic (3250 W. Cherry Lane) will offer vaccines for adults and children.

Dr. Nassir said the vaccine is not 100 percent guaranteed to prevent the flu, but can significantly reduce the severity of the illness and flu symptoms.
