Flu infections are expected to be widespread in 2022-23, according to medical experts, and it’s imperative we avoid the “one-two punch” of contracting the flu with COVID-19 still so active in our communities.
While wearing a mask, washing your hands and other safety measures are helpful, there’s no substitute for receiving the flu vaccine, health care professionals say.
Because of that, for the month of October, AdventHealth is teaming up with News 6 for the Get Healthy Florida initiative to offer free flu vaccines to the community.
The dates the vaccines will be available are as follows:
- Monday, Oct. 10 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Advent Health Centra Care: 630 N. Bumby Ave. in Orlando.
- Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Advent Health Centra Care Ocoee Medical Office: 11001 W Colonial Dr Suite 110 in Ocoee.
- Thursday, Oct. 13 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Advent Health Centra Care The Mark at Horizon West: 9225 Miley Drive in Winter Garden.
The community is encouraged to take advantage of the free vaccines, but supplies are limited, so the shots will be provided on a first-come first-served basis.
