Over the past 13 years, Florida Hospital Centra Care, with Get Healthy Florida, has provided over 200,000 free flu shots to Florida residents. This year, they are doing it again by offering five different local opportunities to get your flu shot, fast and free.
A flu shot is the single best protection against the flu. The CDC recommends getting your flu shot as soon as they are available. According to Centra Care, to combat last year’s unexpected flu strain, this year’s flu vaccine has been strengthened for broader protection. There is no reason to delay, as immunity will last throughout the flu season. No reservations needed and shots are given on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
