"We all know people are crunched for time and no one wants to get out of their car, park it and go inside to get their shot," Desai explained. "You'll literally just drive through our parking lot where you'll be greeted by one of our staff members. The staff will ask you a quick questionnaire and if you qualify for the shot, which is really easy, you will pop your arm out the window and we will give you the flu shot."

Desai said after you get the shot, you will be placed in a holding area for about 10 minutes to make sure you don't have any reactions and then you're good to go.

All forms of payment will be accepted, including cash, credit cards and insurance. Normal copays do apply.

If you want to saved time, you can download and complete the flu vaccine questionnaire ahead of time.
