The flu is an equal opportunity illness: affecting people of all ages, races and/or income. Flu symptoms can range from mild to hospitalization to death.

The first, and most important, step in avoiding the flu is by getting vaccinated. If you have avoided getting a flu shot because of the cost, head down to the Comcast arena on Saturday and get vaccinated for free!

Snohomish Health District, Mukilteo-South Everett Rotary, and Walgreens staff and volunteers will provide uninsured and low-income adults with flu shots and/or whooping cough vaccinations.

The clinic is hosted by Comcast Arena which is also offering free skating in their Community Ice Rink for all those attending along with their children.

The flu is very contagious making vaccination a crucial step to help keep yourself and others from becoming ill. Flu shots do not contain live virus so getting the flu from this vaccine is not possible. Other steps include covering all coughs, washing hands thoroughly, and staying home when you're sick.

Vaccination is also the best protection against pertussis also known as whooping cough. While no longer at epidemic levels, cases are still being confirmed. Since whooping cough can be deadly to infants, all pregnant women and those who spend time around any babies need to get the booster shot to keep the infant protected
