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.
