Posted: Updated: Dec 19, 2012 12:06 PM EST

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.

People looking to be vaccinated can check the Virginia Department of Health website.
