"Vote & Vaccinate" at Polls Across Country

With record numbers going to the polls, some health officials are taking advantage of the big crowds by asking people to roll up their sleeves and get flu protection while they wait.

The program is called "Vote and Vaccinate". You are not going to find it anywhere in Texas, where high risk folks are good about getting flu shots, but in 250 polling places around the country in 35 states, nurses will be vaccinating people to give them a healthy reason to go to the polls.

To find a polling center that is also offering flu shots visit: http://www.voteandvax.org/
