Riverside Doctors’ Hospital is giving out free flu shots next month in an attempt to prepare the community for the coming flu season.

Located on Commonwealth Avenue, the hospital is offering shots while supplies last on Oct. 5. People 14 and older are eligible.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention considers children younger than 5 and adults older than 50 to be especially prone to catching the flu virus.

The CDC recommend anyone older than 6 months get a vaccine before the end of October.
