Ochsner Baton Rouge Offers Drive-Thru Flu Shot Option


Baton Rouge, LA – Ochsner Baton Rouge has a new, easy and safe way for anyone to get a flu shot. On October 24th, residents have the option to drive up and receive a flu shot without getting out of their car. Flu shots are available for patients age six months and older, by appointment. Make an appointment or call 866-OCHSNER to pre-register.  Patients do not have to be an established Ochsner patient, but online registration requires a MyOchsner account.

 

Please wear a mask, bring a picture ID and your insurance card to your scheduled appointment. After receiving the shot, patients will be asked to park and wait in their car for 15 minutes before driving away. Below is a schedule of local flu fairs:

 

Saturday, October 24

8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

 

Ochsner Health Center – O’Neal

16777 Medical Center Drive

Baton Rouge, LA 70816

 

Saturday, October 24

1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

 

Ochsner Medical Complex – The Grove

10310 The Grove Blvd.

Baton Rouge, LA 70836

 

 

If the drive thru option doesn’t work for your schedule, Ochsner offers three additional options for a flu shot:

  1. Visit an Ochsner Urgent Care – open seven days a week – for adults and children 6 months and older.
  2. Ochsner Health Centers offer flu shots by appointment. Schedule online through MyOchsner or call 225-761-5200.
  3. Visit an Ochsner Pharmacy & Wellness Location, which accepts most insurances and can administer flu shots to adults and children ages 7 and up. Walk-ins are welcome.

“The flu can have a serious impact and greatly weaken your immune system,” stated Ochsner primary care physician Brandon Weeks, D.O.  “We don’t know how the flu and COVID-19 may interact, but it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot to keep your immune response strong.”
