'Tis the season for the flu, and officials in Pennsylvania said it's not too late to get vaccinated.
It's National Influenza Immunization Week, and the Department of Health wrapped up the week by offering free vaccinations at clinics across the state, including one in Berks County.
The shot protects against three flu strains, including the H1N1 strain. It's recommended for everyone over 6-months-old.
More than 35,000 Americans die from the flu every year, and officials said it's a virus that's easily preventable.
"Influenza is always a very serious issue. Getting a simple shot or getting the flu mist is a quick and easy way of protecting yourself and also those who you live with," said Brent Ennis of the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
If you missed Saturday's flu shot clinics, you should contact your local health care provider.
