Jamaican Resort Offers Flu Shots By The Pool

Negril, Jamaica -- A lot of people go to Jamaica to get a tan -- but now you can also get a flu shot.

The Grand Lido Negril Resort has just started offering a "Good Health" package where guests can get a flu shot while on vacation.

There may be a shortage of the flu vaccine in the U.S., but Grand Lido spokeswoman Zein Nakash says there is plenty in Jamaica and the tropical climate means the flu is "not a problem here."

Although Nakash figures most of the people who get vaccinated will do it in the office of the resort's nurse, she says guests can opt for a shot while sunning themselves by the pool or beach.

She says tourists can get injected while at the hotel bar but "not if they're drinking."

The flu shot package will be available in November and Nakash says the resort is already getting a shot in the arm from the offer.
