Greenville Health System is offering an easy way to get a flu shot.

A free drive-thru flu vaccine clinic is being held Friday at 4 p.m.

Organizers say the event lasts until 6 p.m. at the Patewood Memorial Hospital. Shots will be given at no cost to adults as long as supplies last.

“We thought a drive-thru flu shot clinic would be a great, timely and innovative way of meeting the community’s needs,” said Pam Billings, manager of GHS’ Employee Health & Wellness.

They say all you have to do is pull up to the canopied entrance, roll down your window and hold out your arm from the comfort of your car.

So far this season in South Carolina, 30 people have died from complications of the flu.  Health officials in Buncombe County, North Carolina released information Friday stating two deaths have been reported there this week.

More than 25 GHS volunteers will assist at the free clinic on Friday.
