HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Connecticut Department of Public Health is teaming up with local health departments to provide free and low-cost influenza shots as flu activity continues to increase across the state.

The vaccine will be made available at 13 clinics on Saturday. A schedule can be found on the agency’s website .

Public health officials are urging all Connecticut residents over the age of six months to get a flu shot. DPH Commissioner Dr. Raul Pino says “it’s not too late to get protection from the flu this season,” which has been linked to 21 deaths so far this season in Connecticut.

The vaccine will be administered for free to children 18 years and younger, and adults without insurance. Those with coverage should bring their card. They’ll be charged a minimal fee.
