The city has sustained its partnership with Borinquen Medical Centers, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and The Children’s Trust to provide free flu vaccines. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, however, flu vaccination has many other important benefits. Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and flu-related death in children.
