The Torrance South Bay YMCA helped locals take steps to protect themselves from the flu. 

The Torrance South Bay YMCA hosted a free shot clinic today in collaboration with Arconic and Western Medical Group.

The Centers for Disease and Control are calling this the worst flu season in 8 years. This year, at least 30 children have died from the flu. To protect yourself from the flu, wash your hands and stay away from people who may have symptoms. If you’re sick, cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze.
