Flu shots will be adminis- tered car side at the follow- ing locations and times:
Memorial Drive-Thru Lab, 2950 S. Sixth St., Springfield, 8 a.m.. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Memorial Drive-Thru Lab, 320 E. Carpenter St., Springfield, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2 and Nov. 6.
Memorial Physician Services-Lincoln, 515 N. College St., 8 a.m.. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 9. Memorial Physician Services-Jacksonville, 15 Founders Lane, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 9.
Upon arrival at the drive- thru labs and clinics, patients should remain in their vehicles and proceed to one of the open drive-thru lanes. An MPS employee will assist with completion of registration and will admin- ister the vaccine.
“More than ever, we should all be aware of what we can do to prevent the spread of infectious diseases like influenza,” said Dr. Raj Govindaiah, senior vice president and chief medical officer of Memorial Health System. “Everyone should get a flu shot, continue to wear a mask, wash your hands, social distance and stay home if you are sick.”
Although influenza activity occurs year-round, infec- tions increase in fall and winter – usually between October and May. All MPS clinics have flu vaccines available.
“The simplest way to pre- vent the spread of influenza is to never get it in the first place, which is why I encourage everyone to get the flu vaccination now and to continue to take steps to prevent the spread of ill- ness,” Govindaiah said.
As additional preparation and to ensure a smooth process, patients are asked to prepare to do the follow- ing before arrival:
Come prepared with a mask to wear.
Wear loose-fitting clothing for easy car side access for vaccine administration. Note that vaccines are adminis- tered in the thigh for infants and small children; all other patients will receive the shot in the upper arm.
Bring a valid photo ID and most recent insurance card.
Have an ink pen in your vehicle for completion of consent form, or print and complete it prior to arrival.
