The flu shot is also available for free at doctors’ offices, nurse practitioners, selected pharmacies and local clinics.
Because the influenza virus changes frequently, the vaccine changes and is offered each fall putting babies, children, older adults and people with certain health conditions are at a higher risk of serious flu complications.
