Free flu shots in Cocke County
The Cocke County Health Department is offering flu vaccine at no charge to the community during a special “FightFluTN” vaccination event on November 19. “Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself, your family and others from the flu and help keep our community healthy,” says Cocke County Health Department Director Jana Chambers. ”The flu can make you very sick, keep you away from work, school and other activities, put you in the hospital or even take your life. We urge everyone in Cocke County who has not received a flu shot yet to get one now, and this event is a great time to do it.” The Cocke County Health Department will provide flu shots November 19 at no cost to anyone who wishes to receive one at the Newport Community Center located at 433 Prospect Avenue, Newport from 10 AM to 1 PM. Seasonal influenza activity is spreading in Cocke County and across Tennessee and is expected to continue for months, so it’s important for anyone over six months of age who hasn’t had a flu shot this flu season to get one now. The flu vaccine is especially important for infants, young children, pregnant women, adults over age 50 and those with chronic medical conditions. The flu shot remains the best protection against influenza. For more information about the flu vaccine, call the Cocke County Health Department at 423-623-8733.
