Contemporary Christian WPOZ (88.3)/ORLANDO partnered with FLORIDA HOSPITAL CENTRA CARE to offer free flu shots to the CENTRAL FLORIDA community on NOVEMBER 9 and broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the most vaccinations given in a single day. The new record is 3,271 vaccinations given in one day, breaking the previous record of 2,480 vaccinations given in a single day, which was also set by WPOZ and FLORIDA HOSPITAL CENTRA CARE in 2004.
The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS DAY held on NOVEMBER 9 also happened to be the same day as the first of five free flu-shot events that the station is sponsoring throughout NOVEMBER and DECEMBER.
"It is a great way to kick off the campaign," says PD DEAN O’NEAL. "This is our third year partnering with FLORIDA HOSPITAL CENTRA CARE and offering free flu shots to our listeners."
WPOZ has partnered with FLORIDA HOSPITAL CENTRA CARE on many successful health campaigns this year, including Colon Cancer Awareness, Women's Health Month and Breast Cancer Awareness.
