WK Quick Care is encouraging the public to roll down their window and roll up their sleeve for the third annual drive-thru flu shot campaign. Quick Care already has seen a few cases of influenza in the weeks leading up to the typical start of flu season in October.
Because a flu shot is the first line of defense against the virus, Quick Care physicians urge the public to get vaccinated early.
Drive-thru shots will be available from 7 to 10 a.m. and 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Quick Care Bossier.
Quadrivalent vaccine is available for adults and children ages three and older, as well as high dose vaccine for ages 65 and older. Participants roll down their window, complete a short consent form, provide their insurance information and receive the shot. The consent form is also available at wkquickcare.com for those who want to complete and sign the form in advance. If insurance coverage is not available, the cost of the shot is $35 (cash or credit card).
Flu shots are also available inside all Quick Care locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week during flu season while supplies last. No appointment is necessary.
Lesley Sawrie, Quick Care director, says, “Our goal with the drive-thru campaign is convenience. We understand everyone has busy schedules. The drive-thru allows the entire family to get a flu shot without getting out of the car!”
