Carle Community Flu Clinics begin September 22

Carle community flu clinics begin September 22 and will run through November 20 this year at various locations in east central Illinois.

For those looking for an even more convenient way to get their flu shots, Carle is offering a drive-thru clinic on September 22-23 and 29-30 at a new location, Carle’s North Annex, 810 W. Anthony Dr., directly off I-74. This option allows most 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.

"A central location provides quick and easy access to drop by and get your flu shot. Our community drive-thru clinics are a great way for busy parents to get this important task accomplished while they are out running errands," said Toni Kerney, RN, Carle flu clinic coordinator.

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 $60. Carle will not offer Nasal FluMist this year. The Centers for Disease Control recommend flu vaccines for persons age 6 months and older.
