The Charlottesville-Albemarle Health Department is tackling an early flu season. Wednesday afternoon, people ages 3 and older could get free vaccinations at its flu shot clinic.
"The Health Department and the CDC, we're always really are more concerned about those who are at a higher risk of developing the flu complications: the elderly, the very young, pregnant women and those with immuno-compromising conditions," said Elizabeth Beasley with the Charlottesville-Albemarle Health Department.
The Centers for Disease Control recommend everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot each year.
The vaccine was offered on a first come, first served basis. Wednesday's clinic took place from 2-5 p.m. at 1138 Rose Hill Drive, but the department says for those who missed it, there will be other opportunities for immunization.
