Americares has announced that free flu shots are again available on selected dates at its clinics in Bridgeport, Danbury, Norwalk and Stamford. It’s a project of the Americares Free Clinics and Walgreens, now in its third year. More than 500 uninsured Fairfield County residents received a shot last year.

Flu shots will be available to those who are at least 18 years old. The immunizations are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis and administered by a Walgreens pharmacist.  

In Danbury, vaccinations are offered Oct. 10 and 17 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Boehringer Ingelheim Americares Free Clinic, 76 West St.

In Bridgeport, vaccinations will be available on Oct. 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. and Oct. 21, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Fred Weisman Americares Free Clinic, 115 Highland Ave.

In Norwalk, the flu shots are available from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 11 and 18 at the Bob Macauley Americares Free Clinic, 98 South Main St.

In Stamford, the vaccinations are available at Building One Community, 75 Selleck St., on Oct. 16 from 4 to 7 p.m. and Oct. 17 from 5 to 8 p.m.
