August 28, 2009 - 12:46 PM | by: David Lewkowict

Atlanta based AeroClinic announced it will start offering the H1N1 flu shot to travellers at a series of concourse based kiosks at Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.

AeroClinic will have seven location set-up to offer the vaccine as soon as it becomes available. Starting September 15 the privately held company will begin offering the seasonal flu vaccine.

Dr Martin Cetron, of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says airports are a natural place for H1N1 to spread with thousands of inbound and outbound passengers in close proximity.

The CDC's Dr. Anne Shuchat says they are on track to have 45 million to 52 million units of the H1N1 vaccine available mid-October.  Most Americans will need at lease 2 doses between 21 and 28 days apart.
