The Rhea County Health Department will hold a special “FightFluTN” event

Tuesday, Nov. 9, to provide flu shots at no charge to increase the number of people vaccinated against influenza in Tennessee. The Tennessee Department of Health urges all Tennesseans ages six months and older who have not yet received a flu shot this flu season to get one as soon as possible.

The Rhea County Health Department will be offering free flu vaccines on Nov. 9 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Rhea County Fairgrounds.

No appointments are needed to get a flu shot during these events.

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-in-tennessee/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.
