Florida Blue offering $0 drive-up flu shots on select Saturdays and Wednesdays

Flu vaccines now available to everyone age 3 and older 
$10 Walgreens gift card to all adults receiving flu vaccines at Florida Blue Centers
 
October 16 2020 - Florida Blue and Walgreens are teaming up, for the fourth year, to provide no-cost flu shots and other vaccinations to the public.  New this year, the no-cost flu vaccines are available to anyone age 3 and older. And, these upcoming events are drive-up events, specially organized for health and safety protocols.
 
This year’s clinics at participating Florida Blue Centers across South Florida are for those age 3 or older -- even those who have health insurance through another carrier or do not have health insurance coverage at all.  All adults receiving a flu shot at the Florida Blue Center will receive a $10 Walgreens gift card, while supplies last.
 
   
 
At this year’s drive-up events, Masks are required, and participants will wait in their car until their turn, and then stand up at their car to receive the vaccine. Participants are encouraged to schedule an appointment and fill out vaccination forms ahead of time for faster service. Forms also will be available at the event, and walk-ups are welcome. 
 
Florida Blue encourages you to get a flu shot to protect yourself and those around you!  Getting a flu shot helps prevent the flu or reduce the severity of symptoms.  Flu vaccination can help keep people from being hospitalized so our health system is not overwhelmed with both flu and COVID-19 patients.
