Student nurse Jana Cooper gives a flu shot through the window of a truck during Central Peninsula Hospital’s annual free drive-through flu vaccine clinic on Wednesday in Soldotna. Normally held in the Central Peninsula Hospital parking lot, this year’s event was down the street at Soldotna’s Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, due to paving work in the hospital lot. In past years, student nurses have given over 400 shots at the clinic, and this year’s turnout seemed similarly large. Before the event began at 3 p.m, cars were lined up down the block as far as Rockwell Lane. (Photo by Ben Boettger/Peninsula Clarion)
