While it is important to get a flu vaccine every year, this year it is especially important to reduce the spread of flu-like illness in our community. Since COVID-19 and influenza symptoms may seem similar, getting a flu vaccine will give people a better understanding of what to do if they start having symptoms.

To help the community get convenient care, Carris Health is offering a new option this year with drive-thru flu vaccines in Willmar, New London and Redwood Falls. CentraCare also offers drive-thru locations throughout the region. When arriving for an appointment at a drive-thru location, patients stay in their car and a nurse comes to them. Appointments are required for all flu vaccines.

Drive-thru flu vaccine appointments are available to those ages three and up at:

  • Carris Health - Willmar Main Clinic on Saturday, October 3 and Saturday, October 17. More drive-thru dates may be added in the future.
  • Carris Health - New London Clinic by appointment two days per week
  • Carris Health - Redwood Clinics by appointment.

Flu vaccines are also available during in-person appointments. To schedule an appointment time, contact your clinic location Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. for further details at that location.

  • Carris Health - New London Clinic: 320-354-2222
