In conjunction with Scrap Tire Disposal Day on Saturday, Oct. 12, the Champaign County Health District will hold a drive-thru flu clinic at the county fairgrounds. Those getting flu shots are asked to bring their insurance cards and photo IDs. The regular flu vaccine is $30; the high-dose vaccine is $60.
Whether getting a flu shot, getting rid of scrap tires or doing both tasks, enter the fairgrounds through the main gate on Park Avenue. This dual event is offered from 9 a.m. to noon to county residents only.
All kinds of tires will be accepted, but no rims. The cost is $1 per tire. Anyone needing to dispose of more than 10 tires is asked to call the Health District at 937-484-1606.
The Health District is encouraging flu shots and, because they make great mosquito-breeding grounds, the disposal of scrap tires.
