Lubbock Impact offering free flu shots on Friday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Doctors say the flu can lead to hospitalization and death, two very good reasons to get a flu shot that can prevent the virus or at least reduce the symptoms.

Lubbock Impact operates through the expertise of the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center.

You must be at least 18 years of age to get a free shot but you do not need an appointment.

Just show up between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday at Lubbock Impact at 2707 34th Street.
