Sellwood Medical Clinic is all ready for you to drive through their parking lot for your flu shot - but do call to make an appointment first. Sellwood Medical Clinic offers "drive through" flu shot: This year, getting a flu shot is described as more important than ever in this era of the coronavirus pandemic – and Sellwood Medical Clinic has devised a new, easier-than-ever way to get one, while maintaining social distancing. Just call for an appointment time, then get in your car and be in their back parking lot on the northeast corner of S.E. 13th at Sherrett Street at the appointed time. Wear a T-shirt or loose sleeved shirt so they can administer the shot in your left arm, pay for it or use your insurance, and you're done. You can even bring others along for their shot too, but they ask that you make appointments for everyone you are bringing along. The number to call for an appointment is 503/595-9300, option 3.

"You Were Here" art exhibit features long-gone Portland icons: PushDot Gallery in the Ford Building on S.E. Division, just north of the Brooklyn neighborhood, is presenting the Lyn Nance-Sasser and Stephen Sasser exhibit of a series of prints entitled, "You are Here – Portland". They've been displaying in the area since 2012, and have decided this is the final time they will be doing so. The show consists of images of people, places, and things that are no longer in our city. The duo has assembled a collection of 30+ new prints, combined with a large-scale, wallpaper-sized, 1956 service station tourist map of the City of Portland.
