    Just in time for flu season, county health departments are reminding North Texans to roll up their sleeves and get a flu shot.

    Dallas County residents can get flu shots for free until the county runs out of the vaccine.

    "Right now there is no flu vaccine shortage, so we want to make sure people understand the importance of getting vaccinated," director of health and human services Zachary Thompson in a news release. "The flu is entirely preventable, so there is no excuse for people not getting the flu shot."

    The shots will be given from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday at the following locations:

    • 2377 N. Stemmons Freeway, Dallas
    • 3312 N. Buckner Blvd., Suite 200, Dallas
    • 1113 E. Jefferson Blvd., Suite 200, Dallas
    • 8202 Spring Valley Road, Suite #200, Dallas
    • 400 S. Nursery Road, Irving
    • 2774 Valwood Parkway, Farmers Branch

    Vaccinations are encouraged for anyone 6 months or older.

    Health officials encourage getting the vaccine now to prevent a flu outbreak when the season peaks in January or February.

    Flu shots are also offered at doctors' offices and pharmacies around town.
