SSM Health to offer free flu vaccinations Saturday

ST. LOUIS, MO – SSM Health is hosting six free flu clinics throughout the St. Louis region on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Flu vaccinations will be available from 8:00am to Noon at several locations and are open to those ages nine and older.

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital is the only location that will vaccinate ages 6 months and above.

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

Vaccinations will be available by injection only. No appointments are necessary. Flu shots will be given on a first-come, first served basis and are available while supplies last. Participants should wear loose-fit clothing.

There will not be a preservative-free option. Pregnant women should obtain a flu shot from their primary care physician.
