Cherokee Nation is offering free flu vaccinations through the month of December to prepare for the upcoming flu season.

From now through December 16, anyone 6 months or older can get a flu vaccine for free.

Tribal health officials have dozens of vaccination clinics scheduled in October, November and December at various community buildings, local businesses, churches, town halls and health centers throughout the tribe’s 14-county reservation.

Flu season typically runs September to March, but each year it peaks during different months. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is encouraging early flu shots.

“The viruses that cause influenza and COVID will both be spreading through our communities this fall and winter and you can become infected with both,” said Cherokee Nation Health Services Executive Medical Director Dr. Roger Montgomery. “Getting a flu shot won’t prevent COVID infection but it will reduce your chance of getting influenza. Please take advantage of the proven protection that comes from getting a flu shot.”

For the flu vaccination schedule, visit the nation’s web site. Vaccination clinic dates and locations are subject to change.
