Fight the Flu Before Flying

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (I still haven’t gotten used to that mouthful of a name) is now offering flu shots at Concourse C. The shots are administered by the AeroClinic, which I did not realize existed until today.

The clinic is staffed daily from 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. The fee for a flu shot is $35 for passengers (it’s a reduced $25 for airport employees). They also accept Medicare and Medicaid for low income and elderly passengers.

We all know that when you’re talking about more than 85 million people passing through a place (like Hartsfield), you’re going to have a lot of germies. While I’m choosing not to get a flu shot this year, I can see this service being really convenient for people who travel a lot or are traveling through Atlanta and want to get a boost of protection against the flu.
