Drive-through COVID testing site, flu clinic offered. 

LUDINGTON — District Health Department #10 (DHD#10) is hosting a drive-through COVID-19 testing site and flu clinic on Sunday, December 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ludington Department of Public Works at 975 First St.

As part of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) COVID-19 Neighborhood Test Site initiative, DHD#10 is coordinating the effort with help from Mason County Emergency Management as well as local law enforcement and fire services. MDHHS is utilizing Honu Management Group to perform the testing and process the specimens, and instructions will be given for how individuals can receive their results.

Pre-registration is encouraged by clicking on the QR code below (with a smartphone, open the camera app and place it over the QR code and a website will come up),  honu.dxresults.com or call 855-873-6996.Those who are unable to register ahead of time may do so at the event.

In addition to the drive-through COVID-19 testing, DHD#10 is providing flu shots to anyone wanting one. There is no out-of-pocket charge for the COVID-19 test or the flu shot but bring your insurance card if you have one and it will be billed to recoup costs.

“When MDHHS approached us on setting up a Neighborhood COVID-19 Test Site, we saw it as an ideal opportunity to also provide the flu shot to those needing one,” said Kevin Hughes, health officer for DHD#10. “With COVID-19 and the flu overlapping this year, now is the time to do what we can to protect our health and the health of others.”

Anyone getting a flu shot during this drive-through event will also receive a $5 Subway gift card, courtesy of West Shore Bank which provided the funds for the gift cards.

Both the COVID-19 testing clinic and the flu clinic are available to anyone ages 6-months and up.
