Free flu shot clinic helps hundreds

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT)- Hundreds filed through ASU-Newport's Center for the Arts today. Not for a performance but for their free flu shot.

The Jackson County Health Unit provided those free flu shots. Today's mass flu shot clinic is one of many being held around the state.

Jackson County Health Unit Administrator Anissa Foushee says the annual clinics are a big help for Jackson County residents. Foushee says, "This clinic is just really convenient, you know they have one day they can come out. And if they don't have the money, they can get it no charge to them."

If you missed the clinic, free flu shots are sill available at the Jackson County Health Unit. Foushee says all you have to do is make an appointment by calling the Health Unit.
