The flu has -rightfully- taken a backseat to Covid over the last couple of years, but medical professionals are warning that it never went away; we just managed to avoid it with mask-wearing and hand washing. Now that mask mandates are being dropped, you can figure that the flu will be back. It’s the visitor no one wants and we have an easy way to prevent it!.

Pharmacists from Brookshire’s Pharmacy will be at the Shreveport DDA office at 416 Cotton Street Friday morning from 9-11 am administering flu shots.  No reservation is needed, just drop by. The pharmacists will bill your insurance or you can pay $20 (cash or credit card). You’ll leave protected with a quad shot for 4-strain protection, and a higher dose shot for those 65+.

There are limited free parking spaces in front of 416 Cotton (please do not park in the area with the ‘No Parking’ sign), but if those are filled, there is free lot parking at the NW corner of Marshall and Cotton Street. Hope to see you at 416 Cotton Street!
