Local health departments in Georgia are beginning the first phase of flu vaccinations.

Right now only patients considered to be high-risk can get the vaccine at the Health Department.

Patients considered to be high-risk include children aged six to 23 months, persons over the age of 65, and pregnant women.

Health officials say vaccines will be available at a later date for the general public.

Archbold's Urgent Care Center in Thomasville says they should have the vaccine for everyone later this month.
