Governor Haslam and Commissioner Dreyzehner will receive their seasonal flu vaccinations at the TDH Southeast Regional Health Office in Chattanooga Friday, September 23.

The Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urge annual flu vaccination for everyone over six months of age.
