CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The parking lot at the Craighead County Health Department was filled with cars on Tuesday.
Free flu shots were given from the time the doors opened at 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.
Health Department Administrator Amy Howell said it's important that you get the flu vaccine to protect yourself and others.
“It won't go away with anything over the counter or just in a few days," Howell said. "You'll feel really lousy. And many people in the US die every year from flu or flu complications.”
Howell said it's imperative to get your flu shot if you suffer from any lung or chronic disease.
