NHRMC Physician Group to Offer Drive-Through Flu Shots

September 15, 2020
NHRMC Physician Group is now offering patients the option to schedule drive-through flu shots. Patients who receive shots at the “FluThru” can get their flu shot in the comfort of their vehicle.  
"Our organization is excited to offer this convenient vaccination option while also maintaining social distancing recommendations," said Stefani Connel, MD, with NHRMC Physician Group – New Hanover Medical Group. "Flu shots provide patients defense against influenza viruses and it is our goal to ensure everyone is protected as we enter this flu season."
The CDC recommends annual influenza vaccination for everyone 6 months and older unless they have special circumstances. Seasonal flu shots protect against the four influenza viruses research suggests may be most common during the upcoming season.
Beginning September 15, any Physician Group patient can schedule their FluThru appointment via MyChart by requesting to schedule an appointment and then selecting “flu shot,” or by calling the practices directly to schedule a FluThru appointment.
