Give it a shot. Stop the Flu!
Seasonal flu vaccines are now being offered free of charge to all team members, volunteers, and staff physicians at locations throughout Orlando Health and also at the Occupational Health office located at 77 W Underwood Street, second floor, Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 4 pm.
This year’s vaccine offers a little extra protection against flu than before! Orlando Health is providing the Fluzone Quadrivalent vaccine – a single-dose flu shot that protects against four strains of flu rather than the usual three.
"The seasonal influenza vaccine is considered to provide the best protection available from seasonal flu,” says Dr. Ken Michaels, MPH, medical director, Occupational Health. “Vaccination can decrease illness severity and is particularly important for healthcare workers who may be at higher risk of contracting and spreading the flu due to close contact with patients and guests. I get the vaccine every year because I want to protect myself, my loved ones and our patients from the flu.” Call 321.841.5212 with questions. Click here to read more.

Where can I go for medical treatment? - Occupational Health at 77 W. Underwood St. in Orlando is the primary Medical Care Coordinator (MCC) site. Team members at Dr. P.
