In DeKalb County, getting a flu shot can be as quick and easy as going through a fast food drive-thru and grabbing a cheeseburger.
On Friday, Sept. 7, the county’s board of health is hosting its annual Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinic. The clinic will be held at the Macy’s at Northlake Mall from noon to 6 p.m.
While the shots will be convenient, they aren’t free. The standard vaccine is $35 and the high-dose vaccine, recommended for people 65 years and older, is $65. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card.

Aetna, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia, Cigna, Medicaid, Medicare Part B, PeachCare for Kids and State Health Benefit Plan will be accepted, but the county asks that you please bring your insurance card.
The county says a flu shot is recommended for everyone ages six months and older, particularly those who are at high risk of serious medical complications, including children, pregnant women and people with asthma, diabetes and heart disease.
“We’re all about providing convenience to the communities we serve,” Don Brundage, the Clinical Operations Manager for the county, said in a statement. “The drive-thru flu shot option is ideal not only for those with limited time, but it’s also convenient for those with limited mobility or who are accompanied by small children.”
