Drive Through Flu Clinic

At first glance it looks like a terribly long line that you wouldn't want to be stuck in, but not so fast!

"I love this! I hate sitting in doctors’ offices," says Charlie Sims.

Danny Davis and his wife agree.

"Oh, this is great! This is the easiest way to do it, and if it wasn't for this we might not do it."

Davis is talking about South Georgia Medical Center's drive through flu shot clinic.

Valerie Swinson with South Georgia Medical Center says, "Just drive through. You don't have to get out of your car. It's very convenient. It's just a little process that you have to go through."

The drive though flu clinic is supervised with nurses, a pharmacist and a physician.

Swinson says, "We check your temperature, we also give you the injection, check your blood pressure and give you Tylenol."

"With the cold and flu season you try and take precautions. Trying to be as careful as possible," Davis said.

Dr. Simon Adames agrees with that theory.

"Prevention is always better than treatment."

The hospital and its staff urge people to take advantage of this clinic and its convenience. The clinic will stay open until 7 p.m., and the cost of the vaccination is $15.
