The leaves are changing and the temperature is dropping — two telltale signs that flu season is upon us.

Uninsured adults can get a free flu vaccine at several upcoming clinics, according to the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.

The next ones will take place on Sunday, October 21.  The flu clinic at Sacred Heart Catholic Church at 1609 N. Summit Avenue, will run from 1 to 3 PM.
