Free Flu Shots in Central Florida!

Centra Care Flu Fighters

Centra Care Flu Fighters

Flu Season is upon us again, and for the 12th year in a row, Centra Care, Florida Hospital Urgent Care and Get Healthy Florida are making sure you and your family are protected. This year, Centra Care is offering six different opportunities to get your flu shot, fast and free!

Everyone 6-months and older can get a free flu shot at any one of the scheduled Fast & Free Flu Shot clinics. Because last year’s flu season impacted younger adults in particular, Centra Care physicians want to remind Central Floridians that the single best protection against the flu is the flu shot, even for healthy children and adults. And since the flu virus changes every year, you need a new vaccination each year.
