Local 10, Walgreens team up for 'Flu Shot Friday'

Select Walgreens locations to offer free flu shots Oct. 25

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – For a fourth consecutive year, Local 10 is teaming up with Walgreens to bring you "Flu Shot Friday." 

It's flu season, and Local 10 is encouraging viewers to visit a Walgreens store on Oct. 25, beginning at 7 a.m.  

At this event, uninsured and underinsured individuals will be given a flu-shot voucher, allowing them to receive the flu vaccine at no cost. Flu-shot vouchers are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. 

It's also a perfect time for people with health insurance to receive their flu vaccination, too. 

The flu-shot vouchers are donated by Walgreens and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of a national program to make flu shots available to those without health insurance coverage or to those who are unable to afford a flu shot. 

Each voucher is good for one flu shot at any Walgreens and is subject to the terms and conditions on the voucher. Must be 18 years of age or older to receive a flu shot at Walgreens stores. 

"For more than a decade, Walgreens pharmacists have been a trusted and accessible community resource for flu shots and other immunizations," said Georgia Lehoczky, Walgreens regional health director. "Every flu season is unpredictable, which is why an annual flu shot is the first and most important preventive measure to take to protect yourself and those around you throughout the season."

Local 10's Flu Shot Friday is for one day only. No appointment is necessary.

For your convenience, below is a list of Walgreens stores near you providing flu shots, along with full hours of operation.
