From fries and Coke to now... flu shots. Monday, Kilgore College nursing students hosted a drive-thru flu vaccination clinic. Drivers simply had to pull up, fill out a little paper work and stick out their arms.
The vaccinations cost $15. Altough this was the last day for the drive-thru clinic, nursing students say they can help businesses with vaccinations as well.
"If any company or business wants to arragne for their employees vaccinated we will arrange anytime we'll come to you give you shots. All that anybody needs to do is call the Kilgore College nursing and we'll arrange anything," says nursing student, Richard McGrew.
The money raised through the drive-thru clinic will go towards scholarships and to pay for other functions benefitting the student nurses at Kilgore College.
