BJC offering free flu shots

   Health officials are reminding residents, there is still time to get a flu shot. Due to the high number of cases in the region, Barnes-Jewish Hospital is providing free flu shots to people 18 year old and older next week. The shots will be offered at a two-day clinic.
   This year’s vaccine is well-matched to protect against the strain of H1N1 hitting relatively young and middle-aged adults particularly hard this winter.
   Barnes-Jewish has reported 9 deaths from the flu so far this year and the peak flu season is just getting underway.
   The shots will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, January 20-21, at the O’Fallon Park Rec Complex, 4343 West Florissant, St. Louis.
   For more information, visit www.barnesjewish.org/flu-shots or call 314-867-3627.
