NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KTRE) - Stephen F. Austin University nursing students were giving out free flu shots today to the city of Nacogdoches.

The school teamed up with East Texas Community Health Services to put on a free drive-thru flu shot event. Everyone is welcome to stop by to receive their flu shot. People lined up, filled out their basic health information and then drove around to the nursing students who would administer vaccines.

Madison Powell, fourth year nursing student, said this helps the students gain clinical experience.

“We get to practice doing injections, and it’s a really good way I think for us to serve our community, get to know everyone and just really put it on a level where we get to meet these people who helped us with this clinical experience,” Powell said.

The injections start again tomorrow at the school of nursing. They’ll be giving vaccinations Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
