Md. counties to hold free flu vaccine clinics

CHEVERLY, Md. (AP) — With flu cases on the rise in Maryland and nationwide, at least two counties in the state are hosting free vaccination clinics.

Prince George's County will offer free nasal-spray flu vaccines in Cheverly and Clinton on Monday.

Anne Arundel County will give away the vaccine at the Glen Burnie Health Center.

No appointments are necessary for the clinics.
