Visiting Nurse Service at St. Francis will kick off the flu season by hosting three drive thru flu shot clinics beginning the first Friday in October. The drive thru clinics not only offer the convenience of remaining in your car, but this year participants will also receive $10 off the regular price of the vaccinations.

"VNS at St. Francis is excited to be offering three locations for our drive thru clinics this year," said Lisa Lowery, Immunization Program Manager for VNS at St. Francis. "By offering locations in Carmel, Indianapolis, and Mooresville, we are hoping to make it as easy as possible for all those who wish to be vaccinated. As an added bonus, those attending any drive thru clinic will receive $10 off their vaccination!"

The flu vaccine lasts for one full year. Get your flu shot early, alleviating the worry when fighting the shopping crowds in the fall and you will be covered for the entire flu season!

Drive-thru clinics are great for those with elderly parents who cannot stand for long periods of time while they wait in line. A drive-thru clinic also offers the mothers of young children the benefit of a "captured" audience. No worries of germ-filled waiting room stress.
