The Tulsa City-County Health Department is extending its Friday hours at its influenza vaccination clinics.
The flu vaccine is available on a walk-in basis from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday at three sites:
The clinics previously closed earlier on Fridays.
- The James O. Goodwin Health Center, 5051 S. 129th East Ave.;
- The Central Regional Health Center, 315 S. Utica Ave.;
- The North Regional Health and Wellness Center, 5635 N. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
This flu season has been more severe than previous years across the country.
Eight Oklahomans have died from the flu since Sept. 30, and 345 have been hospitalized. The flu is now widespread in the state.
Health officials say the flu vaccine is the best way to protect against the flu.
