Nurse: "Hello. Put your car in park. Now relax your arm as much as you can."
Nurse: "Okay, you’re done for another year."
Patient: "Okay, thank you."
Nurse: "I didn’t even draw blood (laughs)."
Sacramento County’s immunization coordinator Lynnan Svensson says the drive-thru clinics are quicker for patients.
"At a health center they could sit and wait for a very long time so it’s definitely more efficient and it helps those people that really can’t get in and out of their cars very easily."
The last drive-thru clinic was held Friday, November 4th at Sunrise Mall from 10 AM to 2 PM. Regular clinics will still be held at various sites around Sacramento through November 18th.
The county expects to immunize about 8,000 people this year.
