The City of Santa Clarita, LA County Department of Public Health and College of the Canyons teamed up to conduct a walk-through flu clinic, where the flu vaccine was administered free of charge to the public.

Seasonal flu vaccines protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.

Everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season. It’s especially important for people with certain medical conditions to get vaccinated.

With the flu season beginning as early as October, the CDC recommends that people get vaccinated against influenza as soon as the vaccine becomes available in their community.
