MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Health officials agree that a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from getting sick. That’s why one county is stepping in to make a healthier community.

Hennepin County Public Health is offering low cost or free flu shots to people without health insurance or those who have insurance that doesn’t cover the shot.

They are holding walk-in clinics throughout December. Donations are requested but not required for the immunizations.

    And who pays for this service? I am NOT saying the poor and those without health insurance should be neglected Does the Hennepin County taxpayer pay for this? Is it those with insurance via higher premiums? where does the money come from for this program?
