The Cleveland County Health Department will hold influenza vaccination clinics beginning Friday and continuing every Friday throughout the flu season, officials said.

Shots will be given between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Norman office at 250 12th Ave. NE and the Moore office, 424 S Eastern Ave.

The shot is recommended for everyone 6 months and older. People at high risk of serious complications from flu are strongly encouraged to get the vaccine, including pregnant women and people with asthma, diabetes, chronic heart and lung disease or other chronic conditions.

Parents and family members of babies younger than 6 months and people who live with or care for anyone at high risk for complications from the flu, including health care workers, should also get the vaccine, said Sherri Kinney, administrative director for the Cleveland County Health Department.

Flu shots are free for families whose income is less than 185 percent of the federal poverty level, for adults 65 and older and for children who have no health insurance or are on SoonerCare or are Indian or Alaskan.
