BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Baton Rouge General and the YMCA are teaming up to “Boo the Flu.”

Their goal is to bring walk-up flu shot events to the community over a two-week period.

It kicked off on Monday, Oct. 9.

Annual flu vaccines are recommended by the end of October to ensure protection throughout flu season. Young children under the age of 5, pregnant women, and those with chronic medical conditions are at the greatest risk of infection.

Ages 3 and up are welcome, and flu shots are free with most insurances. Non-insurance payment options are also available. You’re asked to bring a valid photo ID and insurance card.
