The Tulsa Health Department is hosting a free flu shot clinic on Wednesday.

The clinic is being held at OSU-Tulsa's Main Hall in the 700 block of North Greenwood and it will allow the department to test its emergency preparedness and response program, in case they ever have to issue immunizations during a crisis.

“It’s a great training exercise for us and real benefit for Tulsa County residents because prevention is so important, and the best protection against the flu is that seasonal flu shot,” a department official said.

The department encourages everyone six months and older to get a flu shot.

About 60 volunteers will be on hand to give the shots.

The clinic runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
