HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - We’re approaching fall and that means it’s time to protect yourself from the flu. The University of Alabama school system wants to make sure classmates and faculty don’t miss classes this year due to sickness by offering the flu vaccine. It’s the eighth year of providing free flu shots to protect students, faculty and staff from flu.
The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older.
The University of Alabama at Huntsville is holding three flu clinics this month for staff and students. The UAH Student Health Center is partnering with Walgreens to make sure those who want a flu shot, get one.
