(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The City of St. Joseph Health Department is hosting a free flu shot clinic.

The clinic will be held at the REC Center, 2701 SW Parkway in St. Joseph on Wednesday, October 10 from 8:30 a.m. until noon or while supplies last.

The shots are open to anyone 18 and older who lives in Buchanan County.

Health officials recommend everyone six months and older to get a flu shot. This year's flu vaccine is designed to protect against four different flu viruses.

An estimated 80,000 Americans died of flu and its complications last winter, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The flu also killed 180 young children last year. Additionally, the nation experienced a record-breaking estimated 900,000 hospitalizations last flu season.

We ended the weekend with pleasant weather today with sunshine and temperatures in the 60s. Tomorrow looks to be sunny as well with highs reaching the mid 50s. Another cold front is headed our way Monday evening and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. After the cold front moves in on Tuesday, the high temperatures for the area will stay in the 50s and reach the 60s by the end of the week.
