College of Public Health to offer free flu shots Friday, Nov. 13

The USF College of Public Health will host its annual Free Flu Shot Drive on Friday, Nov. 13.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get a seasonal flu vaccine each year to reduce the risk of illness, including hospitalization.

The drive is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or while supplies last, at the college, 13201 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Tampa, FL 33612.  Shots are administered to adults 18 and older on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees can also visit with health exhibitors.

This is the 19th year of the college’s popular flu shot drive.  The longstanding community service is a collaboration between the college, USF Health and the Hillsborough County Health Department, which provides more than 1,000 doses of vaccines to help protect against this year’s flu strains.
