The flu shot is free for health care workers like Aronson, who works as an administrator at Interior Health’s mental health and substance use office. Others eligible for a free flu shot include people age 65 and older, children age six months to five years old, as well as their caregivers, and anyone who has or is living with someone who has a chronic health condition. Upcoming flu shot clinics are October 24 and 31, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Nelson Health Unit, Second floor of 333 Victoria Street. Flu shots are also available though local physicians and walk in clinics.
