ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — The Etowah County Health Department will be holding its annual drive-thru flu vaccine clinic Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The clinic will be held at the North Glencoe Baptist Church. The vaccines will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

There will be no cost to Medicare, Medicaid and Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance holders. There is a $15 charge to those with any other insurance provider. However, no one will be turned away due to inability to pay, according to ECHD.
