• Hundreds Receive Free Flu Shots at Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Free Drive-Thru Vaccine Clinic

    SANTA YNEZ VALLEY — Close to 400 people received free flu vaccines at the recent drive-thru clinic hosted by Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital (SYVCH). 

    Free flu vaccines were administered to those aged 18 and over from the safety and comfort of their cars. COVID-19 safety precautions were followed, and attendees were required to wear a mask to receive a vaccine. 

    “We had an amazing turnout for the drive-thru clinic. We provided free flu shots to a total of 390 people from the Santa Ynez Valley, as well as Santa Maria and Lompoc,” said Katie Gorndt, Vice President of Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital. 

    The clinic was made possible by a generous grant from The Wood-Claeyssens Foundation, a local donor and the support of the Santa Ynez Valley Cottage Hospital Foundation.
