Free Flu Shots Available at Select Florida Blue Centers
We are partnering with Walgreens and have teamed up to offer free flu shots to all Floridians over the age of 18 at select Florida Blue Centers. Flu shots are available at no charge to Florida Blue members as well as individuals who are uninsured, Medicare beneficiaries and those with insurance through other health plans.
The CDC estimates flu-related hospitalizations since 2010 ranged from 140,000 to 710,000, while flu-related deaths are estimated to have ranged from 12,000 to 56,000. An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. When more people get vaccinated against the flu, less flu can spread through a community.
When: Select Tuesdays during the month of October.
Where: Flu shots are available at most Florida Blue Centers across the state, find a participating one at Floridablue.com or call the number on the back of your member ID Card.
Florida Blue members and those with insurance plans through other carriers are asked to bring their membership cards and photo ID with them.
