A chilly morning and corralling the cars arriving to get their free flu shots kept 33 Rotary Club of Farragut members — as well as five members of Hardin Valley Interact Club and a trio of Girl Scouts — busy from 7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 19, at Farragut High School.

According to Tom King, RCF media chairman, 900 shots were administered. Of those, 365 were given to people 65 and older.

Headed by event chairman Mark Bialik, FHS was one of four sites where Rotary Club provided flu shots, given by 35 University of Tennessee College of Nursing students and professors.

“The four sites combined gave 2,239 shots,” King stated in his weekly newsletter. The event also served as a fundraiser for Knoxville News Sentinel’s Empty Stocking Fund, which collected $5,364 from FHS’s location.
