The Miner Mutual Aid Network will hold its monthly Community Table at Miner on November 21 from 11am-2pm. This Community Table will feature FREE flu shots administered by CVS Pharmacy. Flu shots are available for those 12 and up, and children ages 12-18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
To process flu shots for all who need them, please RSVP and select your time slot using this link. Please note, CVS can administer one flu shot every five minutes. When you select your block of time, indicate how many members of your household you would like to receive a shot.
There is no cost to getting a flu shot. If you have insurance, please bring your insurance card. If you do not have insurance, the cost will be covered by the Miner PTO.
We will also once again partner with Serve Your City and Ward 6 Mutual Aid to provide non-perishable food boxes, masks and other PPE, household items, and children’s books and toys.
This event is open to the entire Miner community and we encourage everyone to come out and support each other. Masks and social distancing will be required.
