Flu season in general sucks, right? Mix that in with a nasty, highly-contagious virus, and I'm really starting to dread the winter months ahead.

Health experts have been stressing the importance of getting a flu shot this year, and honestly, it is not something I regularly do. (Shame on me, I know) I fully intend on rolling up my sleeve for the shot this year though, and if OSF St. Anthony Medical Center is your health care provider, they are making it even easier for you to do that too this month.

On Tuesday, (10/6), OSF posted this on Facebook;

Did you know starting tomorrow, Wednesday, October 7, we are offering drive-thru flu shots to patients 18 and older at OSF Medical Group Guilford Square (698 Featherstone Road)? We are offering the drive-thru option from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Wednesday and Friday throughout the month of October. Patients will have to pre-register by calling any local OSF Medical Group –Primary Care office.

Going through the COVID dance at any medical provider's office can be frustrating, and it can take more time than you have available right now, so I think this drive-thru option is a great service to utilize!

Keep in mind, you need to be an OSF Healthcare member to use this service and pre-registration is required, so make sure to call your doctor today to reserve your spot!
