Senior citizens 60 and older can get a free flu shot at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian's annual drive-through shot clinic from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 11.

People with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, severe anemia or other diseases that affect the immune system can also receive free shots.

Last year, more than 3,000 people received the shot at the hospital without leaving their cars. This year's flu shot contains the strains A/Panama, A/New Caledonia and A/Yamanashi to give residents immunity against types of flu likely to occur this winter.

People allergic to eggs or those currently suffering from a cold, the flu or fever should not get the shot.

Information: (800) 514-4624.
