Flu Shot Friday
It is flu shot Friday on the Gulf Coast.
In a partnership with the Mississippi Public Health Institute, the Coastal Family Health Care Center launched the campaign to promote health awareness and safety throughout the community.
This week also happens to be National Influenza Week, which makes it the perfect time to grab your flu shot.
Coastal Family Health Center Reach Coordinator Ruby Montgomery, who was out at the Long Beach Goodwill where shots were being given, says the turnout was great. “Right now with the pandemic going on, flu on top of the pandemic would be really bad. We’re just doing what we can to increase people’s chances of staying healthy during this time of the year.”
Flu Shot Friday began at 9 a.m. and ran until 2 p.m. this afternoon.
