Flu Shot Drive in Monroe

Bring one canned food and get a free flu shot! Donations go to Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana
MONROE -- Monroe Surgical Hospital is partnering with Glenwood Regional Medical Center to offer FREE flu shots to anyone who donates a canned food item.

The flu shots will be administered at Monroe Surgical Hospital on Saturday, December 21st from 9 a.m. until noon while supplies last. Monroe Surgical is located at 2408 Broadmoor Blvd.

"Your good health is important to us that is why Glenwood Regional Medical Center is pleased to partner with Monroe Surgical Hospital to offer free flu vaccines to our community and outlying region. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself against getting the flu and helps improve the health and wellbeing of our community", said Ron Elder, CEO of Glenwood Regional Medical Center.

All canned food items collected during this time will be donated to the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana. The Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana serves 12 parishes and strives to battle hunger and improve the wellness of our community by securing food and providing it to partner agencies who feed the hungry.

Robyn Hemphill, CEO of Monroe Surgical Hospital, says “this opportunity allows us to help a large population in our community. It is the time of year when we should be thinking of others and we want to do all that we can. It is just as important to keep people healthy as it is to insure they are not hungry.”
