Department of Health Citrus Hosts Flu Clinic

October 10, 2022

THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IN
CITRUS COUNTY TO HOST FLU CLINIC
No-Cost Flu Shots Available for Those Six Months and Older
The Florida Department of Health in Citrus County will host a Flu Clinic Saturday, November 5, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Central Citrus Community Center (2804 W. Marc Knighton, Lecanto, FL).
No-cost flu shots will be available, while supplies last, to adults and children 6 months and older. No appointment is necessary, and shots will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Yearly flu shots are recommended for anyone older than 6 months of age, but are especially important for older adults, pregnant women, young children, and people with underlying health conditions. As flu strains change each season, it is important for individuals to be vaccinated again even if they received a vaccine last year.
It takes approximately two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop protection against the flu.
In addition to flu shots, no-cost Moderna COVID-19 Bivalent Boosters will be available, for ages 18 and above, while supplies last. No other COVID vaccines will be offered during the clinic.
