Fresno County releases schedule for free vaccination clinics

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Have you received your flu shot yet?

On Monday, the Fresno County Health Department released a schedule of free vaccination clinics for the year.

The first one will take place this Thursday, September 17th, from 4 to 7 pm at the Nick Medina Senior Center in Selma.

Face masks and social distancing are required at all locations.

Health experts say it's more important than ever to get a flu shot this year.

While the vaccine cannot protect against COVID-19, it is the best defense against the flu virus and potential serious complications such as pneumonia or death.

Health experts also encourage everyone over the age of 6 months to get vaccinated regardless of health status.
