ADH Distributes Thousands of Flu Shots in Region 8

November 03, 2004--Posted at 3:30 p.m. CST

JONESBORO--"I just felt like I needed to get one. I have had one for the last twenty five years probably,"said one Jonesboro resident.

Many Americans are fearful their health may be in jeopardy due to the flu vaccine shortage.

A steady stream of people flowed in and out of the Huntington Building on Wednesday as two thousand flu shots were made available.

The doors to the Huntington Building opened at 8:00 Wednesday morning.

There was a line of people wrapped around the building waiting to get their shot.

"First, we came out here about 8:30 a.m. in the morning, but we couldn't find a place to park. We went back home, and came back around 11:30,"said another Jonesboro family.

The doses available today were only distributed to high risk groups.

This group includes people sixty five and older, children 6 to 23 months, and people with weakened immune systems.

Many people we talked to said this was not the first time they received the flu shot, and they are relieved more vaccines have been distributed.
