Chandler health officials are asking residents to roll down their car windows and roll up their sleeves for an emergency terrorism drill that will test the efficiency of mass drive-through vaccinations.
The first drill of it’s kind at Chandler Regional Medical Center will involve 100 hospital personnel administering flu vaccines to adults through car windows, said Kimberly Day, a spokeswoman for Chandler Regional Medical Center.
The incentive for patients: free flu vaccines.
The goal for health officials: give 1,000 shots in three hours to simulate the need for a mass vaccination in the event of a bio-terrorism attack or naturally-caused outbreak.
“Every city state and county government has an emergency operations plan,” said said Kerry Cassens, a registered nurse with occupational health with the city. “This is a partnership with Chandler Regional and the city to test our ability to respond should there be a need for mass vaccination.”
The Oct. 27 flu drill will follow the largest ever nationwide terrorism drill based at Chandler’s Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort next week, but the “drive-flu” event is separate from the federal authorities’ drill, Cassens said.
The first 1,000 people to enter the vaccine drill will receive free flu vaccines, officials said. Participants age 18 and up can pull into a six-lane drive-through, open the car door or window and fill out a consent form while waiting in line, Cassens said. Then they’ll drive up to a nurse and receive a shot in the arm.
“We encourage people to come out because we want to be tested to the max,” Cassens said. “We want this to be a test of our ability to give 1,000 immunizations.”
The drill will utilize four city paramedics certified for vaccinations and the rest will be hospital personnel, Cassens said.
At a previous walk-through version of the drill, participants’ average waiting time was five minutes, Cassens said.
Mercy Gilbert Medical Center held a smaller version of the clinic last year where they vaccinated 278 people.
A flu shot for an uninsured patient normally costs $30 to $40, Day said.
Each year, about 200,000 people are hospitalized and 36,000 people die from the flu nationwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Flu season generally runs November through March.
