Pueblo urgent care center gives out free flu shots

PUEBLO, Colo. — QwikCareMD in Pueblo gave out free flu shots to the first 500 people through the door Saturday.

Employees said with flu season fast approaching, they feel giving people free flu shots is a great way to give back to the Pueblo community, and an ideal way to celebrate the location’s one-year anniversary.

“The flu disease changes from year to year as new strains come out, so certainly you can go through a whole season without a flu shot and not get the flu,” Dr. Steven Wenrich said. “What the flu shot does is it reduces your risk of getting it and if you do get it, it typically reduces the severity.”

QwikCareMD offers flu shots for $14.99 during regular business hours.
