The start of Fall is also the start of the flu season.
You may think of seasonal influenza (the flu) as a common nuisance, but the disease can be dangerous. Last flu season, over 970,000 people were hospitalized because of the flu, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that there were 40 million cases.
It’s simple to greatly lessen your chance of getting the flu or suffering the worst complications from the disease: Get a flu shot.
Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic wants to make it even easier by making the flu shot very affordable.
Thanks to funding from The Hillcrest Foundation, we are now offering $5 flu shots for uninsured adult patients, age 18 and over, at all clinic locations.
