If you haven’t received your annual influenza vaccine yet, it’s time to make a plan.

Shore Physicians Group is here to help make it easier with a drive-thru flu shot clinic Saturday, Oct. 8, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at SPG’s Surgical Division parking lot, located at 649 Shore Road in Somers Point. The flu shot clinic is open to patients age 18 and older.

Drive-thru vehicles may have a maximum of four patients per vehicle and each patient must have a scheduled appointment. Appointments are available online at or by calling 609-365-6200.

You do not need to be a current patient of Shore Physicians Group to participate in the flu shot clinic. For walk-up participants, an appointment is not necessary.

Shore Physicians Group is also offering the flu shot at each of its primary care offices, which are located in Margate, Marmora, Mays Landing, Northfield, Ocean City and Somers Point.

The CDC recommends that everyone age six months and up, with rare exceptions, receives the seasonal flu vaccine. They estimate that since 2010 influenza has annually resulted in 9 million to 45 million illnesses, 140,000 to 810,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 to 61,000 deaths annually.
