The City of El Paso Department of Public Health and Fire Department and partnering agencies will offer free flu shot to El Pasoans during the Be Powerflu event at the El Paso Zoo parking lot.

As we near colder weather and flu season, the flu prevention campaign aims to save lives by urging the El Paso community to get their flu shots this year.
