Free Flu Shots Orlando, 2017

Where to find Free Flu Shots in the Orlando area

It is once again Flu Season here in Orlando and across the country. Don’t delay, get yours today.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. Flu season usually starts in October and peaks between January and March. It is best to get your shot as soon as they become available since the body generally takes two weeks to gain protection after getting vaccinated.

Where to Get a Flu Shot in Orlando

Most physician offices will offer their patients flu shots. If you don’t see a doctor on a regular basis or don’t want to wait for an appointment, there are several other options available. Flu shots are offered at most Walgreens – locate a pharmacy on line. Centra Care has 25 Locations in Central Florida, Tampa Bay and Volusia County that offer flu shots (also see the Fast & Free dates and locations listed below). Get your flu shot at a CVS Pharmacy and receive a 20% off shopping pass (max value $20). Unless you are planning on going to one of the Free Flu Shot events listed below, the best local deal might be at Costco Pharmacy which is advertising flu shots (Influenza) for only $14.99 – though you will need to be a Costco member.
