On Tuesday, Norfolk residents registered to vote at the Park Place Multi-Service Center are eligible to receive a free flu shot from a medical van which will be parked outside the polling place.
The Virginian-Pilot reported:
The Norfolk Department of Public Health is participating in the national “Vote & Vax” program, in which public health providers give free flu vaccines at or near polling places across the country.
Park Place is a predominantly African-American neighborhood which traditionally casts nearly all of their votes for Democrats.
In the 2012 presidential election, the Park Place precinct recorded 1,284 votes (96.46 percent) for Barack Obama, while only 35 votes (2.62 percent) were cast for Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to the Virginia Board of Elections.
The Norfolk City Council is controlled by Democrats, and this is clearly a 'get out the vote' effort on behalf of Democrat Party gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe.
