Flu shots are available at Albany County Public Health, but officials are advising that October maybe the best time to be vaccinated.

Public Health Emergency Response Coordinator Jessica Carrington says that the CDC is predicting an average flu season, with peaks happening in January or February, wrapping up in early spring.  With that in mind, Albany County Public Health says October will be the best month to keep you covered for the whole flu season.

"That's what we recommend," says Carrington.  "We like to push back to make sure people are covered for the whole season.  But if the option is get one now or don't get one at all, please get one."

Public Health will be running flu shot clinics at the Lincoln Center in West Laramie October 4th from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm and October 5th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.  They will offering the quadrivalent flu shot, which protects against four different strains of influenza.

Flu shots from Albany County Public Health are $30.  Carrington says that they can bill Medicare, Medicaid, Cigna and Kid Care CHIP.
