MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. – Several clinics will offer free flu shots in the New River Valley. The virus has claimed many lives this season, including a 7-year-old boy in Pittsylvania County. 

This flu vaccine will be offered free to anyone three years and older on a first-come, first-served basis.

Wear clothing that is loose around the arm so that a public health nurse can administer the flu shot in the upper arm.  

For more information, call the New River Health District at 540-585-3300.
