GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) Some local veterans are now protected from the flu just by rolling down their car windows.

Nurses at the VA Hospital brought flu shots right up to people's cars Saturday for the second drive up clinic of the year.

130 people have been injected between the two clinics.

"it's just real nice," said Rodney Fraser, a veteran who got his flu shot Saturday afternoon. "You don't have to get out and wait in line. I figured there'd be lines, but no there wasn't. This was great."

The VA Hospital will continue giving out flu shots inside Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Nurses will also host two evening clinics for those who work on October 23 and November 5.

"I've been getting them for years and I don't care to be sick, so I believe it's helped me," Fraser said.

All veterans are eligible as long as they can show proof of being in the military.
