Drive-up care available at Children’s Minnesota

Some families have made the decision to delay well-child check-ups due to concerns about being at a hospital or clinic during COVID-19. While we assure you that Children’s Minnesota’s clinics are safe, we want to provide families with options that work for their lifestyles. This is why Children’s Minnesota primary care clinics have implemented drive-up care.

What is Drive-Up Care?

Children’s Minnesota Drive-Up Care serves as a quick and easy way to for families to stay up-to-date on things like critical immunizations, such as the measles or pertussis vaccinations, or injectable birth control. This allows every child to stay on track with their health care and continue to follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for immunizations.

Drive-Up Care is available for established Children’s Minnesota patients over the age of 2. Children’s Minnesota primary care clinics in Brooklyn ParkHugoMinneapolisRogersSt. Louis ParkSt. Paul and West St. Paul are offering Drive-Up Care at this time.

Is Drive-Up Care safe?

Yes! The care team brings their sterile techniques and standard processes for vaccinations right to your car.

How can I use Drive-Up Care?

Follow these steps to make an appointment for drive-up vaccines:

  1. Call your clinic to make an appointment.
  2. At your scheduled time, drive up to the designated parking space for drive-up care.
  3. Call the number posted on the sign.

A provider will come to your car to give your child the care they need.
