St. Luke’s Medical Center opens Drive-Thru Vaccination for Grown Ups in Global City
To provide patients with safety and convenience in their vaccinations, St. Luke’s Medical Center (SLMC) will open its Drive-Thru Vaccination for Grown Ups service on June 16, 2021 — available at St. Luke’s Urgent Care in SLMC-Global City. This initiative is an extension of the recent launch of St. Luke’s Pedia Drive-Thru Vaccination service for children.
The drive-thru vaccination is focused on providing necessary vaccines to adults, particularly Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), Flu, Varicella (chickenpox), Pneumococcal, and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. COVID-19 vaccines are not available in this service.
Patients seeking to book a timeslot simply need to contact St. Luke’s Product Information Hub (PIH) for their drive-thru vaccination. St. Luke’s PIH will assist the patient throughout their booking, teleconsultation, and payment. On their date of vaccination, patients would simply need to go to the designated driveway in SLMC-Global City.
St. Luke’s puts great emphasis on the importance of the vaccines offered as many are still not vaccinated against common diseases. For example, Varicella and MMR vaccines are commonly associated with children, but non-vaccinated adults still need to receive the appropriate dosages to combat diseases such as measles and chickenpox.
Meanwhile, flu vaccines are highly recommended to be taken yearly for both children and adults. Flu shots are affordable vaccines that make a big difference in a person’s yearly health, as flu outbreaks tend to commonly occur in the workplace, at school, or even at home.
Vaccines such as HPV and Pneumococcal help people fight against serious infections.
Vaccines such as Pneumococcal and HPV are ones often overlooked, yet they help prevent major infections that are passed through person-to-person contact. A Pneumococcal vaccine, for example, can help fight against pneumococcal infections such as pneumonia.
HPV vaccines, on the other hand, are highly recommended to people who engage in frequent skin-to-skin contact, especially those who are sexually active. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HPV infections can cause genital warts and certain kinds of cancer for both men and women.
The Drive-Thru Vaccination for Grown Ups is one of St. Luke’s “Better Normal” initiatives for patients struggling to get their timely vaccines amid the ongoing pandemic. This, along with the Pedia Drive-Thru Vaccination — will provide a safe and convenient vaccination process for all.
