Lubbock flu clinic makes national news

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock made national news Tuesday for hosting a drive-thru flu shot clinic.

Both msnbc news and The Weather Channel took an interest in the idea of getting a flu shot without ever leaving your car.

Some people say they would not return for the swine flu vaccine when it becomes available. "I'm reading that since we've had several ahead of time that we probably won't need the other one," said one Lubbockite.

Last week, Lubbock had 53 confirmed cases of flu regardless of strain. Two weeks ago the number was 45. The city guesses that only one in four flu cases is reported because local hospitals and clinics report influenza voluntarily. It is not a mandatory report.
