The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) will host a FREE Drive-thru Flu Shot event on Saturday, October 17, 2020. 

The event will be held at Freedom High School, 2500 West Taft Vineland Road in Orlando. It will be open to the general public from 9am until 3pm, and the flu shots are free for everyone six months and older. First come, first served. While supplies last

Getting the flu shot each year is important, but reducing illness and hospitalization from
flu is even more critical this year to protect frontline health care workers and hospital
systems who will continue to care for people with COVID-19 and other illnesses. 

The Drive-thru Flu Shot event will make it possible for residents to roll in, roll up a sleeve and receive a flu shot safely and quickly while remaining in their vehicles, and roll out. Masks will be required while getting services. 

Residents should wear clothing that is loose around the arm so the public health nurse can administer the flu shot in the upper arm, without requiring residents to leave the comfort and convenience of their vehicle. 

For more information, please call DOH-Orange’s Call Center at 407-723-5004.
