Port of Long Beach to Offer Free Flu Shots

Free flu vaccinations will be available to the public for one day only at the Port of Long Beach’s COVID-19 testing site to ensure the health and safety of labor partners and the community.

Free flu shots will be available Monday, Nov. 16 at the Port of Long Beach’s COVID-19 testing site.

Flu shots will be administered Monday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2100 W. Anaheim St., a vacant lot located within the Harbor District at the southwest corner of Anaheim and Ninth streets. Please enter the lot from Ninth Street.

No appointments are necessary, but anyone receiving a flu shot must be 6 months of age or older. The Port is providing the vaccinations in partnership with the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.

The flu shots are available as long as they last at the same site as a drive-up testing center for COVID-19 that was established in August. Free COVID-19 tests are provided at the testing center on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 to 7 p.m.
