Carle Community Flu Clinics begin Sept. 28

Carle community flu clinics begin Sept. 28 and will run through Nov. 26 this year at various locations in east central Illinois.

For those looking for an even more convenient way to get their flu shots, Carle offers a drive-thru at the Carle North Annex, 810 W. Anthony Drive, Urbana, directly off I-74 at exit 183, on Sept. 28-29 and Oct. 12-13. This option allows most people being vaccinated to stay in the car. Some will need to come inside including those receiving the vaccine for the first time, people using Carle for the first time, or those paying with cash or credit card.

No appointment is necessary at the community flu clinics. Carle Physician Group patients may choose direct billing and must bring their clinic number and insurance card to do so. Medicare patients must bring their Medicare cards for direct billing. Non-Medicare or non-Carle Physician Group patients should be prepared to pay at the time of service.

Seasonal flu shots cost $40; high-dose flu shots cost $70. Carle will not offer nasal FluMist this year, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. CDC recommends flu vaccines for persons age 6 months and older.
