The flu season is upon us, and public health officials are busy pushing people to get vaccinated.

Researchers are touting a new vaccine, one that protects against four strains of the virus, rather than three. There’s also a few different ways to get the vaccine, including a nasal mist for people who are afraid of needles.

But for some people, the biggest question isn’t whether to get vaccinated — it’s where to find a flu shot clinic.  Luckily, there’s a couple good resources to help ease that search.

One website, vaccine.healthmap.org, lists a multitude of flu shot clinics across the region, along with phone numbers to start shopping around.

And finally,  elpasocountyhealth.org offers information about the flu, along with more information on ways to get vaccinated.
