Free flu shots have been provided by the Mexican Government at the centros de salud in Chapala and San Antonio  for months. They are the vaccine that the Mexican health department determined was the right one for Mexico. 

No, it is a financial and economic decision to keep costs down; MEX buys the cheapest vaccine.  TIV = Trivalent and QIV = Quadrivalent.  The free shots at the various clinics and hospitals here are TIV.  The LCS shots are QIV.

Public health and economic impact of switching from a trivalent to a quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine in Mexico
In the retrospective model, the base case analysis showed that over the six influenza seasons from 2010/2011 to 2015/2016, replacing TIV with QIV would have prevented 270,596 additional influenza cases, 102,000 general practitioner (GP) consultations, 140,062 days of absenteeism, 3,323 hospitalizations, and 312 deaths (Table 1). Young children aged 0 to 4 years would have benefited the most from a switch to QIV, this age group accounting for 43% of the avoided influenza cases, 36% of avoided influenza-related GP consultations, and 49% of avoided hospitalizations (Supplemental Table 3). Adults aged ≥ 60 years also benefited substantially, since 91% of the prevented deaths were within this age group.

I asked the person I sent there and this is her reply; "One Block before the lake"  . "It’s a nice size government Building . There is also a small School on that street .  There is a big sign giving the phone number for the Virus  out front. I wasn’t paying much attation to where we were going ." She is derectionally challended-I hope his helps."

If you use google maps and enter centro de salud, san juan cosala it is clearly shown but this board won't let me post the map. 

On Calle La Paz about a block and a bit south of Viva Mexico restaurant. Open 8:30 am until 2:30 I think.
