GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Uf Health Shands Occupational Health Services and the UF Student Health Care Center are starting to give out free flu vaccinations to UF students, faculty and staff.

Cecilia Luna, marketing and communications coordinator for UF Student Health Care Center, says this year's flu vaccine is very similar to the last two years. The Student Health Care Center will continue to provide free vaccines to students, faculty, and staff for the remainder of September, October and November.

You may remember last year when UF had a one-day competition with FSU to determine who could give out more flu vaccines. This year, Luna says they have added UCF and USF to the competition, which will take place here at UF on October 2nd. It will be a part of the Student Health Care Center's, "Fight the Flu Lawn Event", where students can get free flu vaccines, free t-shirts, and even some free food.
