Some Alaskans can vote, get flu shot

Posted: Tuesday, November 04, 2008

FAIRBANKS - Some Alaska residents will experience a little nonpartisan pain when they vote.

The state is offering flu vaccine shots to voters at precincts in certain cities today.

Health officials said it's simply a "public health strategy" and not an effort to influence voting in an election year.

The vaccinations will be available at four polling places in Fairbanks. Public health centers in Delta Junction, Bethel, Kenai and Kodiak also will take part in the effort, known as the Vote and Vax project.
