Flu season is fast approaching and, starting Monday, you can get that all important flu shot.
The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department will begin offering walk-in flu shot clinics each weekday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
This year, you'll be getting a "quadrivalent" vaccine, one that protects against four strains of the flu virus, marking the first time more than three strains have been included in the shot.
It costs $38, but many insurance plans cover it.
The Center For Disease Control recommends everyone over six months of age get a flu vaccine.
After all, hundreds of people die from flu-related complications every year.
