STL Co. offering free flu shots

Flu season is upon us, and health officials say St. Louis County is being hit hard.  More than 800 flu cases have already been reported in the county and almost half the victims are 15-49 years old.
 
Doctors believe as schools and universities get back in session and people congregate the number of flu cases will only increase.  That's why St. Louis County will be offering free flu shots at three locations next week.  Residents six months and older are eligible.
 
The shots will be offered at the following locations:
 
North Central Community Health Center
4000 Jennings Station Road in Pine Lawn (63121)
Tuesday, January 14th, 2014
12:00 p.m. (noon) to 4:00 p.m.
 
John C. Murphy Health Center
6121 North Hanley Road in Berkeley (63134)
Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
12:00 p.m. (noon) to 4:00 p.m.

4580 South Lindbergh Boulevard in Sunset Hills (63127)

   St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch is asking the FBI to help in the investigation of suspicious financial dealings at the county health department.  Chief Fitch has asked the FBI to conduct a forensic investigation into the financial records involving former health department administrator Ed Mueth.  

   County police are trying to determine if Mueth had co-conspirators when he allegedly used a bogus computer company to steal millions of dollars from the county before committing suicide.  

   Chief Fitch says his department has received hundreds of pages of subpoenaed records and wants to question dozens of people over Mueth's financial dealings.
