Franciscan Health offering drive-thru vaccine clinics all month long

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Franciscan Health wants you to get the flu and COVID-19 vaccines at one of their drive-thru clinics this month.

Misty Marcum, a licensed practical nurse with Franciscan, says flu season is September through April and the time to get vaccinated is now.

“I think more people are taking up on the flu shots this year as well as the COVID-19 boosters,” Marcum said. “They’re getting the combination of one in each arm to get that maximum protection.”

Flu shots are available for people ages six months and up.

COVID-19 bivalent boosters are available for Hoosiers ages 12 and older. “You must be at least two months past your last vaccine,” Marcum said.

If you plan to use the drive-thru service, be sure to bring your insurance card and ID.
