Atlanta airport clinic to offer early flu shots

ATLANTA (AP) - A clinic at Atlanta's busy airport will soon be
offering season flu shots.

Rosemary Kelly, chief marketing officer of the AeroClinic, says the clinic dispensed about 10,000 flu shots last year, and the service will expand this year because of expected heavier demand.

Kelly says that while flu season typically doesn't start until Oct. 1, the company is offering the shots starting Sept. 15 "to accommodate people who want to get a jump-start on flu season."

She says it plans to offer the shots at least through the end of
December.

The shots cost $35.

Kelly says the AeroClinic hopes to get an allocation of H1N1 flu
vaccine when it becomes available, which is estimated around
mid-October.
