TULSA — With flu season showing no signs of slowing down, the Oklahoma Caring Van is working to stop the virus from spreading.

Due to the fact that flu strains can change each year, officials say the best way to avoid the flu is to get the annual flu shot.

The Oklahoma Caring Van has nine mobile units that offer free flu shots to children 6 weeks to 18 years old.

The immunizations are given on a first come, first serve basis to those who are uninsured, American Indian or Medicaid eligible, officials say.

They plan on hosting several clinics here in Tulsa all through the month of March.

They will be out at the Peoria WIC Clinic near 71st and Peoria on Tuesday, March 3 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the afternoon.
