GIVE YOURSELF AN EARLY HOLIDAY GIFT: QUIT TOBACCO AT NO COST IN SEPTEMBER

Full Story

Give yourself the best early holiday gift this year by quitting tobacco before it’s time for holiday get-togethers and shopping.

The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County (DOH-Pinellas) is hosting Quit Your Way sessions from Tobacco Free Florida at two of its centers in September to help you get there. The group sessions are open to the public and presented by the Gulfcoast North Area Health Education Center (GNAHEC) at no cost to you. Two-hour sessions at DOH-Pinellas centers will be held on these dates:

Last year’s flu season was a scary one, but don’t let that frighten you. Get protection early on at the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County’s (DOH-Pinellas) annual “Flu Boo” clinic from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Pinellas Park health department, 6350 76th Ave. N.

No-cost flu shots will be available, while supplies last, to adults and children older than 3. Participants can choose to get the vaccine from the comfort of their cars at the drive-thru or come inside to the building’s clinic area.
