A new way to combat flu season.

Photo Of the Day: Digger's Serves Up Irish 'Flu' Shot

With Riverhead residents seeing a higher number of flu cases in years' past, and some locations running out of flu shots, some business owners are getting creative.

Steven Wirth, owner of Digger's on West Main Street in Riverhead, posted his creative "flu shot" on the eatery's Facebook page. "My wife saw something similar on the internet earlier this week -- an airline showing little bottles of liquor, saying that's how they do a flu shot -- and we  were hysterical," he said. "I thought, 'I have to do something like that for Digger's.' I wanted to lighten up everyone's mood."
