The Louisville Metro Department of Health and Wellness will begin offering seasonal flu shots today.

Spokesperson Kathy Harrison says the vaccine is being made available a little earlier this year.

“We would like to go ahead and get as many of the seasonal flu shots out there as possible, so that when the H1N1 vaccine comes in late october, we’ll be ready to get those,”  she said.

The seasonal flu shots will be available at various locations.
