Tallahassee, Fla.—State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. Celeste Philip received her annual flu shot today, demonstrating the importance of flu vaccination for all Floridians. The flu vaccine is safe and remains the most effective way to protect against seasonal flu for anyone 6 months of age or older. It takes about two weeks after vaccination to develop protection against the flu so it is important to get the flu shot early, preferably before Halloween.

Visit FluFreeFlorida.com for more information or to learn where you can get your annual flu vaccine. The department encourages all Floridians to get vaccinated so we can help be #FluFreeFL.
