Flu clinics go drive-thru

Just like you may have done for your COVID-19 vaccine, you will not have to leave your car if you want to protect yourself from the flu this season. Flu activity was low last year thanks to COVID-19 mitigation efforts making it hard to transmit all kinds of viruses. Experts say that could change as people return closer to the lives they had before the pandemic. In preparation, Door County Medical Center is offering flu vaccine clinics close to 30 different times across the next several weeks at locations in Sturgeon Bay, Fish Creek, Algoma, and Washington Island. Drive-through clinics have already started at Stella Maris Church in Fish Creek and will be made available at the Door County Medical Center Sturgeon Bay Clinic beginning October 4th. 

 

Chief Clinical Officer Jodi Hibbard says they found out well the drive-through clinics could work when they began distributing the COVID-19 vaccine in a similar fashion earlier this year.

Patients will have to make an appointment either online or over the phone. Last year over 189 million Americans received the flu vaccine.
