BERLIN, CT (WFSB) -

With cold and flu season creeping up on folks, many people were looking to ward off the virus with a shot.  

Eyewitness News visited the Stop and Shop in Berlin where a flu shot clinic is being held on Wednesday.

Doctors said flu season can run from October through May.

They added that the best time to get the shot is now because it takes about two weeks for the flu shot to build the immunity in the body.

Several Stop & Shops are holding clinics across the state.
