Guthrie is sponsoring the annual Greater Valley EMS free drive-through flu shot clinic Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Lynch-Bustin Elementary School/Harlan Rowe Middle School complex in Athens. This is a great opportunity for friends and family members to receive a free flu shot. A flu shot is one of the easiest ways to protect yourself and your loved ones this flu season. Guthrie employees can receive flu shots during one of the scheduled flu shot clinics at Guthrie, which you can view here.
