CHICAGO — The city is offering free flu shots for all Chicago residents.

Officials have said everyone who is able to should get a flu shot this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Doing so can prevent the health care system from being overwhelmed by sick people and can help protect people from having the flu and coronavirus at the same time.
