Weekend flu clinics busy in Boston
BOSTON (AP) -- Vaccine clinics in Boston were busy over the weekend after Wednesday's declaration of a flu emergency in the city.
Boston's public health commissioner says more than 6,000 people got flu shots at nearly two dozen free clinics across the city, after officials announced that a child under 6 died after being diagnosed with the flu.
State health officials have reported about 6,000 confirmed flu cases in the state and 18 flu-related deaths, all in adults. More clinics are scheduled this week in Boston.
Officials say there is enough vaccine available.
