Starting Monday, the State Department of Health will be offering flu vaccines with no 'out of pocket' costs.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health is offering the vaccines at all county health department locations.

If you do have insurance, bring your card to prove coverage.

The flu vaccine is recommended each year for everyone 6 months and older.

The interim health commissioner is stressing just how devastating the last flu season was with 291 deaths.

Oklahoma County and Tulsa County residents should check with their city-county health departments to find out when flu clinics will be available.
