Free flu shots in Albuquerque Saturday

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico Department of Health is offering free flu shots Saturday at its Albuquerque Midtown Public Health Office.

The clinic is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Health officials recommend that everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine each flu season. Especially at risk, they say are children, people over 50, Native Americans and people with chronic medical conditions.

The New Mexico Department of Health offers vaccinations for people without insurance for free. Those with Medicaid or other health insurance should bring their insurance cards with them to the clinic to get a shot at no-charge.
