    Methodist Physicians Clinic Offers Drive-Thru Flu Shots at 5 Area Locations

    The COVID-19 pandemic has brought countless changes to our lives, but the importance of getting an annual flu vaccination remains. In fact, getting vaccinated against the flu is a key tool in keeping yourself and the community safe and healthy.

    In addition to offering traditional flu shot appointments with primary care providers, Methodist Physicians Clinic is now offering drive-thru flu shot appointments at five locations. The drive-thru option is intended to make the flu vaccine more accessible and convenient for patients while promoting COVID-19 safety measures.

    Here’s how it works: 

    • Patients should call ahead for an appointment. At that time, their insurance information will be collected. 
    • At the time of their appointment, the patient will have their ID checked and receive a flu shot from the comfort of their own vehicle. 
    • The clinic will bill the patient’s insurance, and self-pay patients will be billed by mail. No payment will be accepted at the clinic. 
    • The process of receiving the flu shot takes only a few minutes.

    Appointments are encouraged but not required. Staff members also can administer a vaccination inside the clinic if necessary.

    “The health of our communities is our top priority, and we’re constantly working to remove barriers to care for our patients,” said Michael Ortmeier, senior director of clinic operations for Methodist Physicians Clinic. “Methodist’s drive-thru option is intended to be a safer, faster alternative than traditional appointments to get the flu shot.”
