Flu Vaccines – Are Here!

The flu vaccine is here and we would like to offer a couple of options to get it to UPPC patients only.

Flu vaccines will be offered during normal scheduled clinic visits when and if appropriate.

UPPC has begun to SCHEDULE flu vaccine appointments. The injection will be given by a UPPC nurse or MA. Scheduling appointments, versus walk-ins, should allow us to better manage the volume and flow of people in the clinic office and support social distancing practices.

We will be doing curbside check-ins for ALL APPOINTMENTS.

UPPC’s 1st Drive-Thru Flu Clinic was a great success. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked to learn the best method to serve everyone in a timely manner.

The second flu clinic date has been canceled because the Saturday weather forecast is overwhelmingly poor. We will reschedule as soon as possible, depending on weather, staffing, and availability of vaccine.

DRIVE-THRU Flu Clinic – No appointment needed, stay in your car, be patient, this is our first clinic like this. PLEASE WEAR MASK.

Saturday October 10th, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. CANCELED due to inclement weather.

Weather and staffing will determine next Saturday Flu Clinic date. Please continue to watch for updates. We will send another message via text or email, to remind you, if you have not received it.

Tips for Drive-thru Flu Clinic

Dress kiddo’s in short sleeve or shorts depending on where you want the injection. Everyone in the car should stay in the car, kids stay in car-seats.

Follow the flow of traffic. Clipboards will be handed to parents while in car, parents complete 1 form for each child. As vehicles arrive at the front of the injection line, forms will be reviewed, RNs and MAs will be reaching inside vehicle and give the shot without anyone exiting the vehicle.

Reminder: Flu vaccines outside a clinic visit are available during normal clinic hours but an appointment is required. These will be nurse appointments and scheduled separate from physician appointments. Please call to schedule your flu shot if you do not have an appointment coming up soon and we will all do our best to get all of our patients vaccinated.
