If you take the flu shot each year, Quincy Medical Group has set up drive thru flu clinics so you can get your flus host and then be on your way. I've done this and it takes about 10 minutes or less and you don't even have to leave your car. The clinics will be set up in Barry, Illinois; Keokuk, Iowa; Mt. Sterling, Illinois' Pittsfield, Illinois; and Quincy Illinois, and for those who are 2-years of age and older.

If you are wanting to use one of these clinics, appointments are encouraged and can be made simply by calling the clinics close to you. If you are going to attend one of these clinics, you are asked to please wear a mask while getting your shot.
