COLUMBIA, Mo (KMIZ)
MU Health Care is opening a drive-thru flu shot clinic every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at its South Providence Medical Park through Oct. 31.
The clinic will offer flu shots to anyone six months and older in the parking lot just east of the South Providence Medical Park located at 551 E. Southampton Drive in Columbia.
“The drive-thru vaccination clinic is a new option for us to provide safe and convenient flu shots during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Christelle Ilboudo, MD, medical director for infection control and prevention at MU Health Care.
The drive-thru flu shot clinic is just one of several vaccination options available to patients:
- Kids 6 months and older can get a flu shot at their pediatrician’s clinic.
- MU Health Care and the David B. Lichtenstein Foundation will offer free flu shots to children enrolled in Columbia Public Schools.
- Patients who have established care with an MU Health Care primary care doctor can make an appointment to receive a flu shot.
Patients are asked to wear a mask, loose clothing and short-sleeves if possible. All patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and asked to review and sign a consent form before receiving a flu shot in their vehicle.
