Flu season is here, with seasonal influenza cases now reported across Tennessee. The Cannon County Health Department is working to protect the entire community by providing free flu vaccinations to area residents until vaccine supplies are depleted. Appointments must be made to receive flu vaccine, and are now being scheduled at the clinic.
"Vaccination is the best protection against the flu, and the Cannon County Health Department, the Tennessee Department of Health and the CDC recommend that everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine every year," said Andrea Fox, Health Department County Director. "It takes about two weeks to be protected after you get the flu vaccine, so we want everyone who hasn't had their flu shot to get one right away."
Flu shots will be provided at no charge to patients. Both adults and children may receive flu vaccine at the clinic. Please call the Cannon County Health Department at (615-563-4243) today to book your appointment. The clinic is located at 301 West Main Street, Woodbury and open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
