Free Flu Shots Today in Puerto Vallarta

The goal is to increase access to preventive measures as winter approaches, especially among the most vulnerable or susceptible individuals for the flu, including pregnant women, seniors and children under 5 years of age, as well as people with diabetes and chronic degenerative problems.

The flu shots are free and you are encouraged to bring your immunization records.

The services will be provided between 8 AM and 3 PM, Sunday, November 16, at the following locations:

  • Colonia El Remance, outside the municipal market “Emiliano Zapata”
  • Plaza Comercial Soriana (a few meters from Pitillal)
  • Costco (Avenida Francisco Villa, Fluvial Vallarta development)
  • Domestic arrivals area Gustavo Diaz Ordaz international airport.
  • Furthermore, in the main squares of Talpa de Allende and Cabo Corrientes Tomatlán.

 

The times and locations are provided by the Secretary of Health. A reader has reported that Costco was not administering the flu shots as indicated by the Secretary of Health’s release. The reader indicates that Costco stated they would not allow flu shots to be administered from their business, perhaps Costco refused the flu shot clinic from setting up after the release was prepared last week. In any event, if any other readers went to Costco for a flu shot based on our story, we apologize that the secretary of health did not follow through with their agenda, for whatever reason, and did not alert media of any changes.

    No flu shot was offered today at Costco. The store Manager said she had no knowledge of shots being offered, and that Costco would never have any affiliation with health organizations to offer shots there. She went to Vallarta Daily’s website and read that the flu shots were being offered at various locations, including Costco. She in turn said that she would contact the paper to find out why it was printed that Costco would offer the shots.

    So, I did not get the flu shot at Costco today!!

      Those locations are provided by the Secretary of Health through an official press release, if the secretary did not follow through with their own media release we apologize to you. It’s unfortunate that the store manager did not click the contact link on our website and tell us they were not offering shots at that time, then we could have made a correction when it was important. Six hours later isn’t helpful to the public and the store manager never contacted us. They were at Plaza Comercial Soriana just down the street from Costco, that is where I went. Maybe the store manager refused them to setup. They released two more days, Tuesday and Wednesday at Unidad Municipal Administrativa. That is located at Av. Mezquital #604 Col. Portales. That is from the secretary.
