Hundreds roll up their sleeves in Stamford for this year's flu shot
Hundreds stood on line at the Stamford Government Center Tuesday to get their flu shots.
The state health department says there have been 12 cases of the flu already this year in Connecticut. It's recommended that anyone over 50 years old or with a compromised immune system get the vaccine. Doctors say it's equally important that children from 6 months old to 5 years old also get a shot.
The government center will have flu shots available on Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. The shots are free for city workers and $30 for everyone else -- but doctors say that's a small price to pay to prevent the aches and pains of the flu.
