Camden County kicks off flu shots

October 15, 2008 2:52:00 PM PDT
This flu season appears to be much different than years past. - no vaccine shortage, and plenty of place to get a shot.

About 2-thousand seniors rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated today at the kickoff of Camden County's flu shot campaign.

For many, coming to this event at Cooper River Park is a must.

Ron VonStetina, of Cherry Hill, says, "It's worked so far. I haven't had the flu ever."

Freeholder Riletta Cream, who is about to hit a vigorous 82 years of age, adds, "I come every year. It's every important for taking care of my health."

And another senior chimes in, "Haven't had the flu; haven't had the pneumonia, and I'm 85 years old."

29 flu shot clinics are on the Camden County schedule this year.
