Community outreach clinics offering Tdap and influenza vaccines in Lee County
The Florida Department of Health in Lee County is hosting community outreach clinics offering Tdap and Flu vaccines.
The Tdap vaccine is critical to preventing Tetanus, especially for those who may have sustained cuts, scratches, or wounds from cleaning up debris after the hurricane and those whose last booster was 10 or more years ago.
Both Tdap and Flu vaccines will be available at no cost on a first come, first served basis during the following outreach events.
