Free flu shots at area clinics

COAST CITIES — North County Health Services (NCHS) is providing no-cost flu shots to the community at any of their medical clinic locations in North County now through the end of flu season.

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others.

NCHS provides immunizations to community members who are uninsured or covered by Medi-Cal. If you are covered by private insurance and choose not to bill your insurance, the cost is $20 per flu shot. All clinic locations are ready to serve those in need of a flu shot and appointments are not necessary, walk-ins are welcome.

North County clinics include:

— 1295 Carlsbad Village Drive, # 100, Carlsbad

— 1130 2nd St., Encinitas
