Thomasville, Georgia-- Normally, you expect to pay to get a vaccine to keep you healthy, but some south Georgians are actually getting paid to get a shot.

At its employee appreciation picnic on Wednesday, Archbold Hospital in Thomasville paid workers $10.00 each to get a flu shot. Archbold's spokeswoman says it's important for staff to get the shots because they treat so many people who have the flu.

Also on Wednesday, the hospital named Jewel Wilson its customer service employee of the year. "It's just a big surprise. I just enjoy what I do. I've been doing it almost 24 years. I started here right out of high school and I've met so many great people," says Wilson.

Wilson is the supervisor of Archbold's nutrition services. She was given an engraved plaque and several other goodies for her decades of hard work.
