MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Dec. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- UrgentCareTravel (UCT) announces that it is teaming up with St. Christopher Fund to offer free flu vaccines to professional drivers. Already facing a challenging lifestyle on the road, drivers need assistance to help them stay healthy, but also need these medical services where they work – on the road.

"Offering free flu vaccines to drivers, along with our walk-in medical clinic services and Health Network, is simply the right thing to do help drivers stay healthy and on the road."
