“The drive-thru flu shot clinics are available to all in our community. You don’t have to be our patient to participate,” said Mike Murnik, MD, senior physician executive at Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital. “To save time, patients can call ahead to pre-register, but it isn’t necessary. We can’t stress enough, the importance to get your flu shot, continue to wear a mask in public, practice physical distancing and stay home when you are not feeling well.”

If one of these scheduled clinics is not convenient, patients are encouraged to call their primary care provider’s office to set up a time that works for them.
