“Getting a flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself, your family and others in our community from the flu,” said Williamson County Health Department Director Cathy Montgomery. ”The flu can make you very sick, keep you away from work, school and other activities, put you in the hospital or even take your life. We urge everyone in Williamson County who hasn’t received a flu shot yet to get one now, and this event is a great time to do it.”

 The Williamson County Health Department will provide drive-through flu shots November 19 at no cost to anyone who wishes to receive one at the Williamson County Agricultural Center on 4215 Long Lane in Franklin from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
