If you haven’t received a flu shot, Flu Shot Friday could be the day.

Get a free flu shot without an appointment Feb. 16 at any Tennessee county health department. Flu Shot Friday is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“It’s basically a fast track clinic for flu shots,” said Warren County Health Department director Andrea Fox.

The Tennessee Department of Health is urging all Tennesseans who have not yet received a flu shot this flu season to get one as soon as possible as seasonal influenza remains widespread across the state. Tennessee county health departments are providing flu vaccine at no charge to patients while supplies last to increase the number of people vaccinated across Tennessee.

“You don’t have to come in during the clinic to get a free flu shot,” said Fox. “The shots are free and we have plenty. Flu Shot Friday is a statewide effort we are participating in.”

Tennessee Health Departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a yearly flu vaccine for everyone aged 6 months and older.
