Get a flu shot! The Knox County Health Department (KCHD) is holding a special “FightFluTN” event December 5 to provide flu shots at no charge to increase the number of people vaccinated in Tennessee.  Free flu shots will be available at the KCHD from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. this Wednesday. It is only during this time that flu shots will be administered for free. 

The Tennessee Department of Health urges all Tennesseans who have not yet received a flu shot this flu season to get one as soon as possible, as seasonal influenza is spreading across the state. 

"Flu kills, and we expect many more weeks of the annual seasonal flu epidemic ahead in Tennessee, so everyone who hasn’t yet had a flu vaccine should get one now, and you can do so for free December 5,” said TDH Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD, MPH. “Flu vaccination is still the best protection we have against this serious and deadly illness. The vaccine that can help prevent illness in you can also save another from illness or death if they were to get your flu, a kindness to others that just might save your own life.” 

All Tennessee county health departments are holding flu shot events Dec. 5 during observances of National Influenza Vaccination Week. 

Flu shot locations and plans vary by county. Find a map of local #FightFluTN flu shot locations and contact information online at www.tn.gov/health/cedep/immunization-program/ip/flu-intennessee/influenza-immunization.html.

The Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a yearly flu vaccine for everyone aged six months and older. Learn more about fighting seasonal flu at www.cdc.gov/flu/consumer/prevention.htm.
