Free flu vaccinations Feb. 2

Public Health – Seattle and King County is adding more free flu vaccination clinics.

The Federal Way Public Health Center will host another clinic from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at 33431 13th Place S. Call (206) 296-8410.

The vaccinations will be available to people who lack insurance or cannot afford to pay for the vaccination otherwise. No other vaccinations will be offered at the time of the clinics.

Health experts recommend flu vaccine for all people ages six months and older, especially for pregnant women and people who have long-term health problems such as diabetes, asthma, heart or lung problems, or immune system suppression. Anyone who lives with a pregnant woman or cares for an infant younger than six months should also get vaccinated to protect the infant from getting flu.
