WILLMAR — Carris Health CentraCare is offering drive-thru flu shots by appointment, according to a news release from CentraCare.

“This year it is especially important to reduce the spread of flu-like illness in our community. Since COVID-19 and influenza symptoms may seem similar, getting a flu vaccine will give people a better understanding of what to do if they start having symptoms,” reads the release.

Drive-thru flu vaccine appointments are available to those ages 3 and up at:

  • Carris Health — Willmar Main Clinic on Saturday, Oct. 3, and Saturday, Oct. 17. More drive-thru dates may be added in the future.

  • Carris Health — New London Clinic by appointment two days per week

  • Carris Health — Redwood Clinics by appointment.

When arriving for an appointment at a drive-thru location, patients stay in their car and a nurse comes to them. Appointments are required for all flu vaccines.
Flu vaccines are also available during in-person appointments. To schedule an appointment time, contact your clinic location from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for further details at that location. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over six months of age.
