Cruz to sponsor flu shot clinic at Philadelphia office

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 7 – State Rep. Angel Cruz, D-Phila., Democratic chairman of the House Human Services Committee, today announced he will be hosting a flu shot clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21 at his district office, 3503 North B St., unit 7 (corner of B and Tioga sts.), Philadelphia, PA 19134.

"As the weather starts to get colder, now is the perfect time to make sure that you’re protected from the flu virus by getting your free flu shot," Cruz said. "The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone at least 6 months old, so I encourage anyone who hasn’t received one yet to stop by and protect both yourself and your family from the flu virus."

Constituents with questions can contact Cruz’ office by calling (215) 291-5643.
