Commissioner Rebeca Sosa to offer free flu immunizations for seniors


Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa is partnering with the Miami-Dade County Health Department to offer free flu immunizations for seniors ages 65 and older. The immunizations will be administered on Thursday, October 18, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Miami Springs Recreation Center located at 1401 Westward Drive, Miami Springs, Fl 33166.

The flu can cause mild to severe respiratory illness. Since the virus mutates, experts recommend getting vaccinated every year to have the latest protection against newer strains that may be circulating.

Additionally, the event is open to all ages, offering the immunization to children up to 18 years old at no cost. Adults 19 to 64 years old may receive the immunization for a nominal fee of $25.
