THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - These days folks can take care of almost every errand without stepping out of their car.
Picking up dinner, depositing checks, and refilling your medication can all be done at a drive-thru.
But what about getting a flu shot? "You don't have to go and be worked up, sit down and wait until you're called. This is just in and out," said Shot Recipient Helen Crain.
Crain is just one of many Thomas County residents who went through Wednesday's flu shot drive-thru.
Needless to say, she was quite pleased. "It must have been an awesome undertaking to put up all these barriers, all the signs. I am so impressed," said Crain.
Wednesday's drive-thru event also served as an emergency preparedness drill. "In case of a real emergency we need to be ready and this is one way that we can prepare ourselves, get our guys prepared, and do a mass casualty thing at one time just practicing," said EMS Director Captain Tim Coram.
Organizers say this event was not easy to put together, but it will not compare to the chaos of a real emergency. "Of course in a real world disaster we will not have the time frame on our hands, but at least it gives us a chance to know who our partners are and be prepared in an emergency situation," said RN Tiann Taylor.
Emergency officials say no amount of planning can fully prepare you for an attack or mass pandemic. But they say the better prepared you are, the better you'll be in the long run.
