SSM Health Medical Minute – 7 free flu clinics to be held throughout the region 

ST. LOUIS - SSM Health is offering free flu vaccinations across the St. Louis region Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in an effort to reduce influenza risk for children, adults, and their families.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, an annual seasonal flu vaccination is the best way to reduce chances of being diagnosed with influenza or spreading it to others.

All SSM Health flu clinics are for those age 9 and above. SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital is the only location that will vaccinate ages 6 months and above.

For all of the flu clinics, vaccinations are available by injection only. There will not be a preservative-free option. Pregnant women are advised to obtain a flu shot from their primary care physician. No appointments are necessary. Participants should wear loose-fit clothing. Flu shots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis and are available while supplies last.
