This year it is more important than ever to get an influenza vaccine. With the pandemic and flu season upon us, a flu shot could not only help reduce the severity if you were to contract the flu, it will help protect your loved ones around you from the virus as well, but it will help the possible strain on hospitals with COVID-19.
Saint Luke's is holding drive-thru flu shot marathons every weekend in October to patients to get their flu shots without leaving their cars. You must be a Saint Luke's primary care patient and have an appointment.
Dr. Michael Munger, physician and Medical Director Primary Care, talked to KCTV about the best time to get your flu shot and how we are making it easier than ever for our patients.

The drive-thru vaccines are being provided at four metro locations:
- Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City - Mid America Heart Institute (entrance 2)
- Saint Luke’s South – Southridge Medical Building
- Saint Luke’s East – Rehabilitation Services Entrance
- Saint Luke’s North – Barry Medical Park
