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.
