JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Starting Saturday at 9 a.m., the NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital will be giving free flu shots to the community. 

A spokesperson with the hospital said the flu shots clinic, which is free and open to the public, will be in the parking lot of NEA Baptist Women's Clinic, located at 3104 Apache Drive, Jonesboro, AR. 

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) everyone ages 6 months of age and older should receive a yearly vaccine for seasonal influenza, or the flu. It is important to get vaccinated before flu season starts, which is usually around mid-October and can last until May. 

The vaccine is important for people who are at a higher risk of developing other illnesses from the flu, such as pneumonia. These people include pregnant women, people age 65 and over, and people who have certain medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.

The clinic ends at noon.
