Drive-thru Clinics Provide Convenient and Safe Access to Flu Shots

August 31, 2022

Protecting yourself and those around you from influenza (flu) will be a little easier this year as Mercy hosts four drive-thru flu shot clinics. The clinics will be held across the St. Louis region over four weeks.

In addition to the convenience of allowing recipients to stay in their cars, the drive-thru clinics will allow for plenty of distancing, an important step in preventing the spread of both COVID-19 and the flu.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends Americans receive a flu vaccine every year as the most important step in protecting oneself from flu viruses. The vaccine has been shown to reduce the risk of illness and hospitalization; it also lowers the risk of flu-related deaths in children.

In addition to protecting people who receive the shot themselves, the vaccine allows recipients to help protect those around them, including those most at risk: babies, young children, older people and anyone with certain chronic health conditions like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.

Mercy will hold the drive-thru clinics on four consecutive Saturdays staring on Sept. 3. They will be provided in four different counties in the region: St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Franklin County and Jefferson County.

All flu shots will be given without appointments on a first come, first served basis. They are available to anyone seven years and older.
