Adults can receive a flu shot from their vehicle.
Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center is having a drive-thru flu shot event on October 17.
The free program will take place at Christ Chapel, 13909 Smoketown Road in Woodbridge, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Participants are required to wear a face mask.
Flu and COVID-19 symptoms resemble one another.
According to a release from Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center, the presence of another respiratory illness may increase the possibility of community members contracting both viruses simultaneously.
Receiving a flu vaccine can help healthcare workers address the Coronavirus, save lives and maintain resources.
In addition to the drive-thru event, they are available at pharmacies and drugstores.
The public may go to their primary care provider or schedule an appointment through a Sentara Medical Group partner, as well.
