PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Sunday marks the start of National Influenza Vaccination Week, aimed at urging those who haven’t to get a flu shot. Free flu shots will be available in one Delaware County location.

The flu season has gotten off to a slow start, but that doesn’t mean it won’t heat up. Flu shots are still available, and the CDC is recommending that everyone older than six months be vaccinated.

Pennsylvania’s Health Department will be offering free flu shot clinics throughout the state with the closest in Chester on December 9th, 10th and 11th.

The health department’s Holli Senior adds, “during the holiday season, sometimes it’s difficult to get to the doctor’s; we thought this would be a great opportunity to try to make it accessible to as many Pennsylvanians as possible.”

You’ll need an appointment, which can be made online anytime at or call 1-877 PA HEALTH Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
