With the first day of September quickly approaching, thoughts of Fall begin rustling. And although the beautiful changing of the leaves, and for many, the relief from the heat make Fall a season to look forward to, in the very back of our minds is that with Fall comes Flu Season! Many local government health departments have begun releasing their free flu vaccine clinic dates. If you are like many, and your insurance doesn’t cover adult immunizations, you may want to find a free flu clinic in your area. Other low-cost options include minute clinics, such as those at CVS and other local pharmacies that offer no appointment, walk-in vaccines.
