Flu Boo III
PINELLAS PARK – The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County will host Flu Boo III clinic that will provide flu shots at no cost on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. (while supplies last), at the health department, 6350 76th Ave. N., Pinellas Park.

DOH-Pinellas staff and volunteers will provide flu vaccines at no charge to the client. Participants can remain in their cars while they get their immunization at the drive-through or come inside the building’s clinic area. This is the third annual Flu Boo event that DOH-Pinellas has offered at the Pinellas Park location. Vaccines will be provided to children older than 3 and adults only.

The registration form for the Flu Boo III clinic is available ahead of time online at pinellas.floridahealth.gov /_files /events /_documents /flu-boo-registration-form.pdf.

Yearly flu vaccines are recommended for anyone older than six months of age, but they’re especially important for seniors, pregnant women and people with underlying health conditions. This season’s vaccines have been updated to better match circulating viruses.

In addition to maintaining good health habits and washing your hands with soap and water, a yearly flu vaccine is the best protection against influenza. Vaccination can reduce flu illnesses in those who do get sick, which can mean less time lost at work or in school.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for protection to set in, so late October is a good time to get immunized before holiday gatherings in November and December.

DOH-Pinellas also provides the flu vaccine for a fee at its centers, as do many other locations in the county.

For information, visit www.PinellasHealth.com or call 727-824-6900.

SPC dinner forum
SEMINOLE – Alexander Heffner, host of the PBS Sunday talk show “The Open Mind,” will speak at The Future of Civil Discourse: Millennials and Politics in 2016, a St. Petersburg College dinner forum set for Wednesday, Oct. 26, 6 to 8:15 p.m., at SPC’s Seminole campus, 9200 113 St. N.

The program is co-sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times and WEDU Television.

Admission to this event, which includes a buffet dinner, is $20 for students and educators and $25 for the general public. Advance registration is required. Visit www.solutions.spcollege.edu.

With a passion for civil discourse gained at the feet of his legendary grandfather, Heffner is a millennial crusader for robust political debate and free speech. Heffner, who has covered American politics, civic life and the millennial vote since the 2008 presidential campaign, will explore the character of politics, the space of old/new media, and the ongoing 2016 presidential campaign. He will be joined by Adam Smith, political editor of the Tampa Bay Times, and Dr. Laurie King, professor of ethics at St. Petersburg College.

Millennials – those born between 1982 and 2004 – comprise the largest generation of Americans at 75.4 million, topping the 74.9 million Baby Boomers whose birth span is 1946-1964 and who are now senior citizens. These young people will comprise more than one in three of adult Americans by 2020 and make up as much as 75 percent of the U.S. workforce by 2025. More relevantly for politics, they will be 40 percent of the electorate by the next election.

In addition to the millennial factor, the panel will look at a political landscape battered by one of the most negative presidential primary campaign in decades. What will be the effect of Donald Trump’s candidacy on the political process – and the parties – going forward?
