Olmsted Medical Center Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic Starts Monday
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Olmsted Medical Center has decided to bring back its drive-through flu vaccination clinic this year.
The service was offered last fall during the COVID-19 surge and will resume on Monday. Appointments are not needed for the drive-through clinic, which will be located under a tent in the upper level of the OMC Northwest clinic parking lot. The influenza vaccine shots will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 8 AM through 5 PM through October 13, weather permitting.
Patients also have the option of receiving their flu vaccine by scheduling an appointment with their primary care provider. The flu shots are also available at many local pharmacies and will soon be offered by the Mayo Clinic.
The annual vaccinations against influenza are recommended for everyone six months of age and older.
