Dr. Tonya Young-Henley, of Family Physicians Group, provided
the residents of central Florida with 500 FREE flu shots on Saturday,

year in the United States, on average, more than 200,000 people are
hospitalized from flu complications, and about 36,000 people die from
October or November is the best time to get vaccinated, but getting
vaccinated in December or even later can still be beneficial since the
height of influenza activity occurs in February or later in most years.
Though it varies, flu season can last as late as May.
