If you are concerned about the spread of the flu, you may want to consider a flu shot. Officials at MedSpring, which operates immediate care and urgent care facilities in Illinois and Texas, are offering free flu shots each Tuesday this month at their Chicago-area clinics.

Public health officials are reporting a spike in flu cases in the southeast region of the U.S., including MedSpring's 11 urgent care centers in Texas, MedSpring officials said.

"After analyzing trends in this season's flu activity, we hope that we can help to reduce the risk of H1N1 in the Chicago area by offering free flu shots," said Jon L. Belsher, M.D., MedSpring's chief medical officer.

The free shots will be available, while supplies last, between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. at MedSpring's clinics in Lakeview, Naperville and Arlington Heights. Appointments aren't needed. Each of MedSpring's facilities is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days per week.

This year's shot protects against H1N1, or swine flu, MedSpring officials said. The CDC estimated roughly 61 million cases of H1N1 in 2009, including 274,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 deaths.
