As seasonal influenza cases are increasing across the state this time of year, the Tennessee Department of Health is encouraging Tennesseans to receive flu shots through their Fight Flu TN campaign on Nov. 19.



"It’s important for everyone in Tennessee to get a flu vaccine, as we’ve seen an increase in seasonal flu activity in Tennessee in recent weeks and expect it to be around for many more,” said Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey in a release. “Vaccination is still the best protection we have against this serious and potentially deadly illness.”



Residents can receive flu shots at the Williamson County Administrative Complex located at 1320 W. Main Street, Franklin, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and the Fairview Recreation Center located at 2714 Fairview Boulevard, Fairview, from 2-6 p.m.



No appointments are necessary to receive a flu shot at the participating locations, and the TDH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a yearly flu vaccine for those ages six months and older, especially pregnant women.
