Every year, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized for flu-related complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The best defense against the flu is to get a flu vaccine every year.

Cigna Medical Group is administering flu shots at walk-in flu shot clinics and by appointment.

The cost is $32 for the public, and no charge for Cigna customers under their preventive care benefit. Those interested should remember to bring an I.D. Card. High dose flu shots are also available to the public for $55, for those age 65 and older, with high-risk for complications of the flu.
