Portland Rescue Mission and Immunize Oregon will host a free flu shot clinic for uninsured people Thursday, Dec. 12, at the Missions Burnside Shelter, 111 W. Burnside St.
When youre living on the streets or lack access to healthcare and become ill, it is easy to be overcome by despair, said Eric Bauer, executive director of Portland Rescue Mission. Basic services like this flu shot clinic express compassion by providing preventative care to hurting and marginalized people.
Flu shots will be administered by Immunize Oregon from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone who does not have health insurance is eligible for a free flu shot.
