QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM)--The medical world believes this may be one of the worst flu seasons in recent memory and Sunday in Quincy residents took an important step to keeping themselves healthy.
Cars circled the John Wood campus this afternoon to take part in a drive-thru flu shot clinic. For $25 adults were given seasonal flu shots and for $10 children were able to get their dose of the vaccine.
Participants say protecting themselves from the flu is taking on greater importance this year.
"The H1N1 virus has really made me think about flu vaccinations that much more. In years past the kids have gotten the flu vaccine, and this year as an extra precaution I decided to do it myself as well," said Lori Walbring.
Sunday's clinic was only for seasonal flu shots. Health Department officials say H1N1 vaccines will be available later this month.
