Fight the flu with free flu shots

Yearly flu vaccination is the best tool currently available to protect against the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend a yearly flu vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against flu and its potentially serious complications.

Millions of people have safely received flu vaccines for decades. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses; doctors’ visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

Palmetto Health is helping protect you and your family with free flu shots throughout Richland, Lexington and Sumter counties. There will be free food, games and prizes at these special flu shot events.

The flu shot is available for anyone six months and older. Insurance is not required. Flu shots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Consent forms are required. Consent forms for children under the age of 18 require a parent or legal guardian signature.

Consent forms, frequently asked questions, schedule of events and more can be found on our website.
