Schedule Your Drive-Thru Flu Shots Now
With flu season approaching and the possibility of a re-emergence of COVID-19 in the fall, it is more important than ever to do what you can to help protect yourself against the flu, and that means getting an annual preventative flu vaccine. We also know that these are uncertain times and recognize you may not be comfortable coming into the office at this time for that vaccination.
This is why we will be holding a drive-thru flu clinic on Saturday, September 19 at our office. We want to provide the opportunity to get your flu vaccination without leaving the comfort and safety of your vehicle. Our staff will, of course, be wearing personal protective equipment and following CDC guidelines to ensure your safety and ours.
Please consider the patient's clothing before arrival. Children under 6 will need to expose the upper thigh. Children older than 6 will need to expose the upper arm. If the patient getting immunized is also driving, we will ask that they remain in the parking lot for 15 minutes before leaving.
Call us at 615-883-2200 to schedule your appointment now. To ensure minimal contact and smooth operation, we will ask you to email or fax a copy of your insurance card to us before the appointment if it is not already on record.
Additionally, please note that children between 6 months and 8 years of age who are receiving their first ever flu vaccine will require a second dose at least 4 weeks after the first. We are happy to schedule the second dose when you call to schedule the first.
