TAMPA Children and adults can get a free flu shot from the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County at 8605 N. Mitchell Ave.

The vaccines are administered 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. Supplies are limited. No appointment is required.

High dose shots, for those over 64, are also free but in limited supply.

During previous flu seasons, shots were free for children only and adults would pay $33.
