ROCHESTER, Minn. – Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) is again offering a drive-through immunization clinic for Shingles, Pneumococcal, Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap), Meningococcal B (MenB), and HPV.
OMC says patients due for those vaccines have been notified and while they don’t need to make an appointment, they will need to bring the letter they were sent along with their insurance information. If one of the drive-through clinic times does not work for a patient, they can call OMC to schedule a different time to come in for their shots.
"Preventative health definitely may have lacked a little bit during the pandemic for various reasons. Vaccines are a very easy way to keep up on some of that preventative health," says director of operations Nikki Rabehl. "Another reason why we're bringing it through the drive-through option: to again make it easy for patients to receive those vaccines."
The drive-through option is being offered at OMC’s Rochester Northwest Clinic in the upper-level parking lot and patients will be required to wear a mask when it is their turn to get a shot. This immunization clinic will be open for three weeks.
