Reminder: Drive Thru Flu Clinic Friday

Officials with the Putnam County Health Department are reminding the public that another drive thru flu clinic will be held at their office, off South Willow Avenue on Friday.  Flu shots will be available from 8 am to 4 pm as people drive through, roll down their windows, and get the vaccine.  Those who take part are asked to wear short sleeves and to have their insurance cards ready. Health department officials say the drive-thru clinics are offered for the convenience of the public, but they say vaccines are also available inside the health department on a daily basis.  A number of area pharmacies and doctor's offices also have them available.  Cookeville Regional Medical Center says they had their first confirmed case of the seasonal flu in late September.
