Flu Clinic Locator

With the flu season coming up, now's the best time to get vaccinated. There have been vaccine shortages and delays in recent years, but supplies should be plentiful this year.

Finding a clinic is easy with the American Lung Association's Flu Clinic Locator. Just enter your zip code to get started. You will get the date, times, address, and phone number of the clinics offering flu shots near you.

The government recommends the flu vaccine for people at high risk for flu complications. They include:

• Kids aged six months to their fifth birthday
• Pregnant women
• People 50 and older or living in nursing homes
• People with certain chronic conditions
