ST. LOUIS — Barnes-Jewish Hospital is offering free flu shots for St. Louis area residents who don't have primary doctors or other means to get a flu shot.

This is the 17th year the hospital has offered free flu shots, according to a press release.

The shots will be delivered at several locations throughout the St. Louis area outside the hospital setting to ensure safe social distancing. Safety precautions include COVID-19 symptom screenings, mandatory masking and social distancing.

The events will be offered in drive-thru and walk-up format.

“By getting a flu shot, you are helping to protect yourself and the people around you from flu this season, as well as helping reduce the strain on health care systems in our area as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said John Lynch, president of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “We are grateful for the partnership of organizations like Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis and the St. Louis Blues to make these flu shot events possible and to help keep our community safe.”
