DEKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – The DeKalb County Health Department will be hosting a free drive through flu vaccination clinic on Wednesday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Dayspring Community Church parking lot in Auburn. 

“The drive thru clinic is a great opportunity for the community to assist [their] local health department in mass vaccination preparedness. This clinic is used as a training exercise in case of an emergency situation where medications and/or medical supplies would need to be distributed to DeKalb County residents,” the DeKalb County Homeland Security said.

In addition to the clinic, there will also be a free will donation food drive. Canned goods, dried foods and cash will be accepted to benefit the St. Joseph Soup Kitchen in Garrett.
