(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)  Peacock Pediatrics gave families the chance to get their flu shot without leaving their cars Saturday morning.

The clinic offered a drive-thru service for families to receive flu shots for the season.

Clinic staff said amid the Covid-19 pandemic, more families are taking advantage of flu vaccines to keep them from getting sick. 

"I've had several patients who've never had a flu vaccine before be interested this year," Dr. Michelle Cebulko, pediatrician, Peacock Pediatrics said.  "I think there's a lot of unknowns as far as how kids are going to react if they're positive for covid and influenza at the same time, so parents are interested in protecting their children the best they can."

Peacock Pediatrics will hold another drive-thru flu shot clinic next Saturday, October 30. Families looking to receive a shot at the clinic will need to make an appointment by calling (816) 396 6026 during business hours.
