CAIRO, GA (WALB) - A south Georgia health department reached out to protect the community from the flu Thursday. 

The Grady County Health Department held a seasonal flu clinic. Both shots and nasal spray vaccines are available for $25 a dose.

Doctors and nurses say it's important to get vaccinated. "We would like to get as many people immunized as possible to prevent flu because people miss work, you can end up in the hospital, and you can even die from the flu," said Grady County Manager Peggy Connell.

The clinic runs until 6:30 Thursday evening.

They'll accept Medicare, Medicaid, and State Health Benefit plans as well as payment by cash and check.
