This year, it’s not just flu season we have to worry about… There’s also a pandemic to consider on top of that. It will be more important than ever to stay on top of our health during the colder months. No one wants to have both the flu and COVID-19, let alone one of them.

Today was the kickoff for a new campaign in central Indiana called “Sleeve Up Indy” to encourage people to get their flu shots. The Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD) will hold weekly flu shot clinics during the month of October. CBS4Indy reports anybody 6 months and older can get the flu shot — $20 for anyone 2 years or older, free for those who are younger.

Maybe you’re looking for a free clinic. There are couple of those for people 11 years or older, according to Fox59:

  • Flanner House — October 15
  • Indianapolis Urban League Drive-Thru Fresh Fruit & Veggies — October 20
  • St. Monica Catholic Church — October 25
  • La Plaza — October 30
