With flu season about to begin and COVID-19 still circulating, MD Now Urgent Care is offering free flu shots at all of its Florida locations to people who do not have health insurance.
The offer applies to the seasonal quadrivalent flu shot, which regularly costs $40.
MD Now has 18 locations in Palm Beach County.

The CDC recommends that all people six months of age and older get a yearly flu vaccine.
Getting a flu shot is more important than ever amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, said Jeffrey Collins, MD NOW’s Chief Medical Officer.
“Since it is possible to contract the flu and COVID-19 at the same time, we suggest that people protect themselves the best they can,” Collins said. “We felt it was important to offer the vaccine for free this year to help avoid co-infections and prevent an additional burden on hospitals and first responders who are already overwhelmed.”
No appointment is necessary, and customers can check-in online at MDNOW.com. All locations are physician-led, and have additional safety measures in place to meet CDC guidelines, MDNow said.
Vaccines will be available while supplies last. Certain restrictions and exclusions apply. The offer is not valid for Medicare patients.
All MD Now locations are open seven days a week, year-round.
