Free flu vaccines will be available beginning Tuesday, Jan. 6 at all Shelby County Health Department clinics.
The vaccines will be given only while supplies last and only during regular clinic hours of Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
The following clinics will be open until 6 p.m.: Millington Clinic (8225 Highway 51 N.), Immunization Clinic (814 Jefferson Ave., Room 216), Shelby Crossing (6170 Macon Road), Southland Mall Clinic (1215 Southland Mall), and Collierville Clinic (167 Washington).
Government health officials said the free flu shots are in response to the increased flu activity seen in the county.
The latest data from the Tennessee Department of Health reported 607 cases of influenza were reported in Shelby County for the week of December 14-20. However, that data is from two of only four sites in the county that report flu information to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
