The Pinellas County Health Department will begin offering seasonal flu vaccines at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 2, at its St. Petersburg office only. The office is in downtown St. Petersburg at 250 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St.

Flu vaccine hours on Wednesdays only are 1 to 5 p.m. Regular flu vaccine hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

The other Pinellas County Health Department locations will begin providing flu shots on Friday, Sept. 4.

No appointments are needed.

The seasonal flu vaccines are different from the H1N1 (swine) flu vaccines that will be offered separately later this fall.

The seasonal flu vaccines are $25.

People who should get vaccinated each year are:

- Children aged 6 months up to their 19th birthday

- Pregnant women

- People 50 years of age and older

- People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions

- People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities

- People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including: Health care workers, household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu, household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated).

“We urge everyone, especially those in the target population, to get their seasonal flu vaccines,” said Claude Dharamraj, director of the Pinellas County Health Department. “While the seasonal flu vaccine is different from the H1N1 (swine) flu vaccine that arrives later this season, it is just as important to protect yourself from the seasonal flu.”

For information, call the Pinellas County Health Department's flu information line, 727-824-6964.
