Valdosta - As we head into flu season, South Georgia Medical Center is hoping to vaccinate 2,000 people in Lowndes County.

They began their annual drive thru flu clinic on Morningside Baptist Church off Bemiss Road Tuesday morning.

For 15 dollars, anyone can drive up and get vaccinated.

With over 36,000 flu related deaths each year, the flu is more common and more deadly than MRSA.

They say getting a shot is the best way to protect yourself from the diseases.  "Our flu season in south Georgia peaks in the end of December and January so now is an excellent time to get your flu vaccine," Sandy Lewis, Assistant Director of Pharmacy at SGMC.

They say young children and the elderly are at a higher risk of infection.

The drive thru clinic will be open until 7:00 PM Tuesday.
