Hampton, Va. – The Hampton Health Department and the Peninsula Health District will offer a free flu vaccination clinic today at Hampton City Hall from 9:00am until noon, or until supplies are exhausted.

The vaccine offers protection against four different flu viruses that research shows will be most common during this flu season: two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses.

Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death.  It is possible for healthy people to pass along the virus even if symptoms are not present.  The vaccine is recommended for everyone over the age of six months, including pregnant women.
