And yet one more place to find a flu shot...although these may be a little different from the ones you get in your doctor's office as it takes a few days before you are protected... might be able to get a blood pressure check while you are at it as well...flu shots are everywhere these days it seems...BD
ATLANTA - After taking off shoes, pulling change out of pockets and going through security checkpoints, passengers now can roll up their sleeves and get a flu shot at gate side kiosks and health stations in some major U.S. airports.
Although health clinics at many U.S. airports have offered flu shots for years in public areas outside security checkpoints, officials found that few passengers want to risk missing their flights by getting vaccinated before clearing the checkpoints. "It's a viable option ... especially for business travelers. They don't have time to go to the physician," Mack said. "This offers another option for the population to get their flu shots." "The convenience is great," Manzon, 53, said after getting a flu shot on Tuesday from The AeroClinic kiosk, located in front of an AirTran Airways gate in Concourse C.
But passengers taking the shots won't be protected right away. Those vaccinated develop some immunity to the flu virus after three or four days. It takes about two weeks for a flu shot to offer full protection.
