COLUMBUS, Miss (WTVA) - Baptist Golden Triangle hospital in Columbus provided more than 1,000 free flu shots Wednesday evening.
They put this event together to give back to the community and keep everyone healthy this flu season.
MUW nurses who were helping out said even though the flu shot does not guarantee you won't get sick, it is still worth a shot to get it.
"A lot of people can get skeptical of the flu shot. They think that if they get it, they are going to get sick," Taylor Morrison explained. "But the vaccine that you are getting is not an active virus, so you're not going to get sick. It will just help prevent you from not getting the virus."
