offering free flu shots!
Your county's Department of Health provides free flu shots to children, the elderly, pregnant women and those with chronic illnesses. It's becoming more common that they'll actually provide free shots to anyone, though wait times may be long. Check with your local health department and see if they'll have free flu clinics or if you can schedule individual appointments. Even nationwide chain drugstores, such as Walgreens, that normally charge for the vaccine are providing free vouchers to those who are uninsured or under insured and can't afford to pay. If all else fails, the CDC's website has a list of locations near you offering the shot. Stay healthy and safe travels!
