The Comcast Arena is putting flu season on ice! There’s a FREE public skate and flu vaccine day for Snohomish County residents on Saturday, January 26.

The free event is to serve uninsured and low-income adults in the Snohomish County area. Volunteers from the Medical Reserve Corp and staff from the Snohomish County Health District will help distribute 300 doses of the adult flu vaccine and 300 doses of the whooping cough vaccine.

You’ll also get a chance to skate on the arena’s main ice rink, the same rink that the Everett Silvertips play on for all their home games!

With flu season in Snohomish County proving to be more severe than usual, getting a current flu shot is the best way to prevent infection.

Vaccination is also the best protection against whooping cough. It is especially important that pregnant women and teens who are around newborns get the booster shot to
protect the infant.
