IU Health Offering Free Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinics

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana University Health is teaming up with Indianapolis-area community groups to provide free flu shots at drive-thru clinics this month.

Flu shots are available for anyone age 11 and up. A maximum of 500 flu shots will be available at each of the four drive-thru clinics:

Flanner House | 2424 Martin Luther King Jr., St.

  • Thursday, Oct. 15
  • 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Indianapolis Urban League Drive-Thru Fresh Fruit & Veggies | 777 Indiana Ave.

  • Tuesday, Oct. 20
  • 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

“With the current COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even more crucial this year to get your annual flu vaccine,” said IU Health family medicine physician Mecca Maxey-Smartt, MD. “You can get both influenza and COVID-19 at the same time or in the same season, which could have a disastrous impact on your health.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone six months and older get the flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for pregnant women, adults 65 and older, children between six months and eight years, and people with certain underlying medical conditions.
