Florida Surgeon General urges vaccination as best defense against rapidly spreading flu virus

Full Story

Health departments in the Tampa Bay region—Hernando, Citrus, Hardee, Highlands, Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota—are strongly encouraging residents older than six months of age to follow the Florida Department of Health’s recommendation that all unvaccinated residents get their flu shot as soon as possible. Flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu and its potentially serious complications.

The Florida Department of Health encourages all Floridians to keep the vaccine between you and the disease by getting a flu shot ahead of the 2019-2020 flu season.

Floridians should get the flu vaccine to protect against infection and help prevent the spread of seasonal flu to others.

It has never been easier, and it’s never too late to get your flu shot!
