Mexico Consulate in San Diego offering free flu shots

SAN DIEGO — Mexico’s Consulate in San Diego is partnering with the County of San Diego and a non-profit called Champions for Health to offer free flu shots to anyone.

The consulate already provides free COVID-19 tests every Monday. The flu shots will be offered on Fridays one week, Tuesdays the next.

“Taking a flu shot is something you should do every year, particularly this year in the midst of the pandemic. It’s crucial to be vaccinated against the flu to mitigate risks associated with COVID-19,” said Consul General Carlos González Gutiérrez.

He says the consulate provides a safe haven for Mexican nationals, but the goal is to be a resource for everyone in the San Diego-Tijuana border region.
