During October, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free flu shots at locations in Pensacola, Cantonment and Pace for adults who are poor, elderly or uninsured.

Only individuals ages 18 and up are eligible for these flu shots. In addition, heart-health screenings will be provided at locations in Pensacola and Cantonment.
