ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Lots of folks in Lee County got a flu shot Wednesday without even getting out of their car.  The health department held a drive-thru clinic. 

The health department has a full supply of vaccine that offers protection from both the seasonal flu and H1-N1.

The vaccine is being offered earlier this year and health officials say getting it now will keep you protected all the way through flu season. They also say it's the best defense from getting the flu.

"The flu vaccine is the most important first line of defense as well has hand washing,protection against the flu virus," said Lee County Health Department Director Dana Hager.

If you missed today's clinic, Health officials say Lee County residents can stop by the health department Monday through Friday to get the vaccine. The cost is just $25 and can be billed to insurance.
