The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has set up three walk-in clinics for South Carolinians in the Upstate, Midlands and Low Country.

Free flu shots clinics will be held in Greenville, Lexington and North Charleston on Friday.

No appointment is needed for the free services and South Carolinians six months and older can receive the shot.

Children under the age of 16 will need to have a parent or legal guardian present in order to receive their flu shot.

Dr. Tracy Foo, DHEC Immunization Medical Consultant, encourages everyone six months and older to be vaccinated every flu season.

"Getting your flu vaccine protects not only you, but your whole family and community," she said. "Last flu season was one of the worst in recent years and highlights the importance of getting your flu vaccine."

Greenville

2801 Pelham Road

10 a.m.-2 p.m.
