The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District announced free flu vaccines to anyone in San Antonio with a state-approved ID, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

"This has been a particularly tough flu season so far. The season still has a ways to go so it’s not too late to get your flu vaccine today," said Dr. Anita Kurian, in a prepared statement released by Metro Health.

To receive a vaccination, stop by the health department's immunization clinic at 1226 NW 18th Street, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Health experts say the flu vaccine is the first step to protecting you from the illness.
