Flu season is right around the corner, and while we're not seeing the mass hysteria that surrounded H1N1 last year, it's still important that you consider getting a flu shot, especially if you're in a high-risk category.

WSAV has a nice report on this year's flu clinics and how the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control doesn't have the federal dollars this year to take clinics into public schools. You can check out the video below.

If you're looking for a DHEC clinic where you can get your flu shot you can check out this link here. And don't forget you can check with your primary-care doctor or your pharmacy to see when they'll be offering flu shots.
