CentraCare Offering Drive-Thru Flu Vaccination Clinics

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

While it is important to get a flu vaccination every year, this year it is especially important to reduce the spread of flu-like illness in our community. Since COVID-19 and influenza symptoms may seem similar, getting a flu vaccination will give people a better understanding of what to do if they start having symptoms.

To help the community get convenient care, CentraCare is now offering drive-thru flu vaccination clinics at two locations in St. Cloud and other locations throughout the region. When arriving for an appointment at a drive-thru location, patients stay in their car and a nurse comes to them. Appointments are required for all flu vaccinations.

Drive-thru flu vaccination clinics are available to those ages three and up at CentraCare – Plaza and CentraCare – St. Cloud Medical Group South. Evening and Saturday appointments are available. Call CentraCare Connect at 320-200-3200 to make an appointment.

For those who prefer, flu vaccinations are also available during in-person appointments. Contact your clinic or 320-200-3200 to make an appointment. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over six months of age. Learn more about the all the locations that offer flu vaccinations.

A drive-thru vaccination clinic was created by the CentraCare pediatric care team when the pandemic began because they wanted to make sure children would have safe access to important vaccines. Because it was so successful, CentraCare expanded this convenient option to all patients, ages three and older, looking to get their flu shot at various locations.
