As this year's flu season continues to take its toll, those who have been putting off are now flooding the waiting room for their chance at getting vaccinated.
"Hey I have to go today. It's already in Madera, and I don't want my kids to get sick," Jessica Franklin said.
A 61 year old woman in Madera County died from the flu Monday, and that got people rushing to the nearest clinic for a flu shot.
"They're constantly touching their faces, touching other things and each other," Diana Gutierrez, a concerned parent said.
The Public Health Department in Madera County had about 160 families come in just 2 hours, but health experts say just because you get the flu shot doesn't mean you're protected right away.
"It takes 10 days for your immunity to kick in," said Van Do-Reyoso, Public Health Director.
Which is why the Madera County Public Health Department says it's better to get vaccinated sooner rather than later.
"It cost $5 but we waive that if they can't afford it," Do-Reynoso said.
