SSM Health Offering Flu Vaccine Clinics

SSM Health offers free, drive-through flu vaccinations for the community. The free clinics are taking place at the following hospital campus locations: 

• SSM Health St. Clare Hospital - Fenton 

• SSM Health DePaul Hospital - St. Louis 

• SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital - St. Charles 

• SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital 

All clinics will be held from 8 a.m. – noon except for St. Joseph Hospital - St. Charles  which takes place from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Anyone above 9 years of age is eligible to  receive a vaccine; the Cardinal Glennon clinic will vaccinate ages 6 months and above. 

Vaccinations are available by injection only. All vaccinations will be preservative-free.  No high-dose vaccines will be available. No appointments are necessary. Participants  should wear loose-fit clothing. Flu shots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis  and are available while supplies last. 

For those unable to get vaccinated at one of the free clinics, SSM Health Medical Group  is holding separate drive-thru flu clinics every Saturday from Sept. 18 – Nov. 6 at five St.  Louis-area locations. To schedule an appointment, go online to the SSM Health  MyChart platform or call us at 314-955-9600. You may also visit us online at  http://www.ssmhealth.com/access/now/ to schedule a visit with a physician’s office or  SSM Health Urgent Care. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control, an annual seasonal flu vaccination is the  best way to reduce chances of being diagnosed with influenza or spreading it to others. It’s even more important this year with the COVID-19 virus’ continued spread in the  community. While the flu vaccine does not protect you from COVID-19, both viruses  affect the respiratory system and can be deadly. 

Anyone over the age of 2 must wear a mask to receive the flu vaccine. Those receiving  the flu vaccine must NOT be COVID positive, under Investigation for COVID, currently  in quarantine for COVID exposure or have any symptoms of COVID.
