Drive-thru flu shot clinic today in Esky

ESCANABA — Flu season is here and OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group is ready.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made a strong recommendation for everyone who is able, six months or older, to receive the flu vaccine this year due to the prevalence of COVID-19. In support of this guidance, OSF HealthCare is taking extra steps to increase the number of vaccinations available and expand access points for patients to receive them.

In addition, a drive-thru flu shot clinic will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. until noon at the John & Melissa Besse Physical Rehabilitation & Wellness Center located at 300 Willow Creek Road in Escanaba. The clinic is open to those 19 years old and up, no appointment is needed.

– Driver’s license or valid ID

– Insurance card

– Pen

– Hard surface to write on

“While there is no current vaccination for COVID-19, the flu shot remains the best defense against the seasonal flu,” said William Hook, MD, Director of Medical Services, OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group. “Because COVID-19 will likely remain a threat throughout the influenza season and conceivably can infect individuals at the same time, we encourage everyone to get a flu vaccine. We need everyone’s help to protect our community during the upcoming flu season.”
